St. Custard’s College, Oxford
The most sarcastic angel in Heaven.
He stands at arrivals, a cigarette hanging from the corner of his mouth, mites in the feathers of his wings, vestments torn and patched with crude stitches.
‘Name!’ he shouts.
He looks up from his clipboard and gives you a look of withering contempt. ‘Why didn’t you finish your stupid novel?’
And you stammer: ‘I…I…I wasn’t good enough.’
He laughs and sends you to Section 14F where you spend the rest of eternity with the Great Armadillo of Despair snacking on your liver.
Now it may be you are one of those visitors to this site who belong to that blessed tribe of folk whose hearts are unvisited by this particular caterpillar: the ache to cheat mortality by writing a novel.
