J. M. Barrie: Peter Pan

If the truth be told, I only began reading it to understand the hints one sometimes comes across. A children’s book from a Kailyard school author didn’t promise much. But taking it in small doses during tea times at work wasn’t bad, and every now and then I even enjoyed it. The beginning was so cosily petit bourgeois after all those Stevensons, Welshes, MacDonalds and Gibbons, and later came a few jokes which did make me smile.
