May have originated in a blogpost by Marc Chernoff entitled 30 things to stop doing to yourself. So the development process was both organic and slightly mysterious, in the way that it sometimes is. She had trained as an actor and you could hear it in her voice: low, reassuring, with a touch, always, of irony. One of the last times I spoke to her, she had rung to ask whether her reputation for being scary was justified; she had heard herself described so and was annoyed and amused.

It was and it wasn't; Pat could certainly be scary, but it was good scary, and I told her as much. She was supposed to be scary. That is how she got you to finish your book, when you were months over deadline and hopelessly faffing. Precision was the thing with Pat, from her couture to the punctuation of her emails and so too with Barnes. You can analyse the metaphorical underwire of Levels of Life ; you can marvel at the structure of a book so well balanced. Make no mistake, however, it is a love story. The heart of my life; the life of my heart.
But through the outline of Barnes's grief, she is in the book's every page. Like death, grief, writes Barnes, is both banal and unique.

It's a sort of past future conditional, if that makes any sense. It's a past conditional about the future. However to begin with, after Pat's death, he was not interested in action.

He started to avoid things he had latterly relished.
I wanted to watch sport to which I would normally be indifferent. Because now I could only be indifferent; I had no emotions left to lend.
