Tuesday 11 January 1994

I'm starting to panic about this Karnyalimenya School that has employed me to teach two dozen 'young students with exceptional literary capability.' It's an independent school, and fairly expensive. Some of the kids' fees are funded by a bequest from a famous Australian novelist whose-name-can-not-be-mentioned-though-we-all-can-guess.

How smart are these kids?

Just the thought of teaching them makes me feel dumber by the minute.
