The Structure of Shame

"I don't even need to look at the photo any more - gentle hills and the small lake on the left (Ireland, you think, clouds and all); two fifths of the picture generously endowed with peace; on the right a pick-up truck. There are neither wheels nor cab, but you know they are sitting in a truck - the wooden sides, the hinge, the tarpaulin. Peace shattered now. Three women, a cascade of wool and felt and velvet: three women, one pair of eyes."
