I pay Naomi a visit, setting off at about 14:00 and returning at about 17:05.
We discuss a book by George Steiner, and another about Sergei Diaghilev. The former book is Tolstoy or Dostoevsky; Naomi reads out some passages from it, and is moved to tears when she talks about oak-tree imagery as used in War and Peace. She has read that novel in its entirety.
