Notes

  • Dedication: To Valerie Druce
  • Epigraph: '...for no one can be good for long if goodness is not in demand. Meanwhile, we shall continue the search, and find other good people. After which, the idle chatter about the impossibility of goodness will stop!' -- First God, 'The Good Woman of Setzuan', Bertolt Brecht
