It is just that, as it now suddenly occurs to me, this is the first time in my life that I have been really alone at night. My childhood home, theatrical digs in the provinces, London flats, hotels, rented apartments in capital cities: I have always lived in hives, surrounded by human presences behind walls.
This is the first house which I have owned and the first genuine solitude which I have inhabited.
Is this not what I wanted?
