Prolegomena to the study of The Pregnant Widow, interlude

An aside. The HOW-IT-ISism of Amis actually adds some fun to his novels for the engaged reader. Use one of the following phrases each time he makes a HOW-IT-IS observation:

• Really Mart?
• Is that so?
• You don’t say.
• What a world!
• How interesting.
• You learn something new every day.
• Nowt so queer as folk.
• lol u wise
• wat

Alternatively, treat the maxim as testable – think of counterexamples, or supporting evidence.

Really must start this book.
