In his appreciation of Lewis Carroll in the March 22nd issue of National Review, Theodore Dalrymple writes:
Isaac raised his hand. “But Miss C—————,” he said, “what if I want to tell you you’re beautiful?”
“Cheeky little boy,” she remarked in her South African-accented English, “but I had to admit that he’d got me.”
I like to tell friends that Isaac will inherit the family business.
