A book in its own right, this is final book of the Torbay trilogy, 'Paths of Error'.
Told throughout in interview form, in 'As Recorded' the hero, Sniff - as he was known in 'Constant Change' and 'Undeclared War' - tells of the childhood of the trilogy's 5 main characters - Newt, Blue, Pancho, Mort and himself - from their starting school in Curledge Street to their all going on to Totnes Grammar; and of their first fights, first sex, and various escapades. And, of course, he tells of his later life too, as a boxer and a businessman, father and lothario.... And why he should be being interviewed....


Excerpt

"The neurologist said that it was probably all down to boxing. I don't see the point of this."
"For research. The collection of evidence."
"To prove what?"
"About you in particular? Nothing. You're not the only subject. But, from all the evidence, we might be able to find common trends, patterns. About ourselves..? We're funded by a body known as the PTT. It is they who are paying for your stay here. You are comfortable here?"
"And this is the price?"
"No. These sessions are voluntary. Your refusal, if you do refuse, will be accepted, your reasons and reactions noted. And that will be that."
"I still don't see the point."
"The gathering of knowledge. Without knowledge we act on faith, prescribe on prejudice. The first step to wisdom is admitting one's ignorance. We know nothing about you."
"What more d'you need to know?"
"For the purpose of this research - everything. Half would be worse than nothing. You are comfortable here?"
"Yes."
"Have you anywhere else to go?"
"No."
"Anything else to do?"
"No."
