EDITOR'S COMMENT: "Loved the history and concept of a time span in a static location.
It was an unusual book to list characters, as often they had no names
(included one as an important character); first or surnames were revealed at
different parts of the story, and have not included a few as they were referred to,
but had no other connection or relevance beyond the sentence."
