Afterword

 

I hesitate to put it this way,

but I’m dying of curiosity:

how did it turn out, Pup?

Were you right, after all?

Is there a heaven?

Is Mum there with you?

Grumbling, almost certainly, about the “inedible food,”

and saying, “Bill, you’ve got to speak to that absurd

St. Peter creature about getting Christopher in —

I mean, it’s all too ridiculous for words.”
