‘Although he was approaching 55, Harvey went through life thinking he still stood a chance with the drifts of young, beautiful women who passed in and (eventually) out of view. Had he been cursed with self-awareness he would have known this was nonsense. Just as he would have known that he wasn’t particularly clever, artistic, witty or well-endowed. But Harvey was lucky. As his ex-wife Emma often told her friends, without bitterness, Harvey was an idiot, steeped in ignorance and powered by groundless optimism. It’s what gave him the spring in his step.’
