An Attractive Man Monday: Felix Moore in Peter Carey’s Amnesia

Felix Moore in Peter Carey’s Amnesia, loc. 145

Amnesia

I spent the day at Martin Place, at the post office, searching the Sydney phone books and getting change at the counter.

‘Do I know, you? You were on TV last night?’

‘That’s me, mate.’

The clerk was a pale red-headed fellow with no bum and his sleeves rolled up to show his biceps. He slowly counted out my phone money.

‘Felix,’ he said.

‘Yes, mate.’

‘You’re a wanker, mate’.

Apologies for the belated post this week!
