Abstract:

Before his father, Oswald, inherited the money, Gabriel Harvey was a happy enough child. Though missing his beloved mother, Amy, when she went off to work in her "secret place," he was beguiled by his father's tall tales and absurdly embellished memories of a deprived childhood, recounted in the gaslit kitchen of their terraced house in a poor part of London. Even the regulars at the Prodigal's Return noted how the switch from beer to whiskey had transformed Oswald from wag to philosopher. For Gabriel, the windfall marked an ominous change in his father's character.
