TOM HART DYKE

I was hopeless at the Common Entrance exams. I didn't even come close to passing. I wasn't even in one of the exams: the orchids were flowering.I never went to university. My university was going away. I won't recommend some of the parts of the world I went to, though; you might not come back.
