He prompts other recollections too - of Rachel, his beautiful wife who became a celebrity, and of Victor's small claim to fame as the man who says the unsayable on the radio. But it's the memories of school, and of one particular Brother, that he cannot control, and which eventually threaten to destroy his sanity...
