FN detail: **SPOILER** (sort of)

I was browsing through Birkin's book again last night (which I am doing rather obsessively now) and found this wonderful detail on p. 99:

"Little Mary opened. . . and . . . . [a]s usual, it contained a sprinkling of lines contributed by the boys, including a remark from Jack. When stuffing himself with cakes at tea, Sylvia had warned him, 'You'll be sick tomorrow.' 'I'll be sick tonight,' replied Jack cheerily, and went on stuffing."

So lines provided by the actual Davies boy ended up in the FN screenplay. Nice.

Interesting. You know, I haven't looked at that book since I saw the movie - I should do that!

Nice catch srt! :cool: Are you using the book for one of your classess? I haven't gone back to the book either lumineuse, but I would like to spend some more time with it and at Birkin's website.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -
Wow! What a ride!
