Greg grasped the bridge of his nose and screwed his eyes shut in a remarkably Brigid-like fashion. “I can’t believe it,” he said. “I suppose next you’ll be saying you never heard of Leslie Howard.”

“Who?” said Alex.

“Begone,” said Greg, putting up a hand as if to ward Alex away. “You’re dead to me.”
