Jonathan Coe - The Dwarves of Death # 5 The Smiths


'               Oh did I really walk all this way. Just to hear you say. Oh I don't want to go out tonight...'

The festering mutual irritation and incompatibility which lings between William and Madeline boils over in McDonald's. He has a go at her for her lack of tangible warmth to her. She storms out. The penny seems not to have dropped with either of them. We've all been there.

Elsewhere there is talk of William being headhunted by The Unfortunates. The first mention of The Dwarves of Death is made. A mythical Punk band. It is unlikely to be the last time their name comes up..
