    I was intrigued and puzzled from the very first paragraph beginning in London, 1988.Saul Adler says I was thinking about how Jennifer Moreau had told me I was never to describe her beauty, not to her, or to anyone else When I asked her why I was silenced in this way, she said, Because you only have old words to describe me This was on my mind when I stepped onto the zebra crossing with it s black and white stripes at which all vehicles must stop to
