At any other time it’s better. You can do the things you feel you should; you’re an expert at going through the motions. Your handshakes with strangers are firm and your gaze never wavers; you think of steel and diamonds when you stare. In monotone you repeat the legendary words of long dead lovers to those you claim to love; you take them into bed with you, and you mimic the rhythmic motions you’ve read of in manuals. When protocol demands it you dutifully drop to your knees and pray to a god who no longer exists. But in this hour you must admit to yourself that this is not enough, that you are not good enough. And when you knock your fist against your chest you hear a hollow ringing echo, and all your thoughts are accompanied by the ticks of clockwork spinning behind your eyes, and everything you eat and drink has the aftertaste of rust Dexter Palmer

I mean, I’m quite a weak person physically, and I think in school, I wouldn’t say I was bullied but you do feel scared sometimes, or frightened, and the only thing I thought I had that was different from other people was the fact that I was actually quite intelligent.

I wanted to know that I had ninety eight per cent and they had ninety five per cent. It wasn’t enough. I felt next to somebody with the same qualifications as me, I would not feel as good. You don’t even know what it means. So you’re constantly trying to get better and improve all the time. Rob Jovanovic

When I got my A Levels, I got straight As, but I thought they weren’t as good as other people’s straight As, said Edwards. They would look at me as if their As were better. We didn’t get percentage marks, so three As weren’t enough. I wanted to know I’d got, like, ninety  flve per cent. Three As is meaningless unless you’re arrogant enough to think you’re as good as them. Which I’m not. I need to see it written down to know. Rob Jovanovic
