Nico on Barrie's humour, with an example from "My Confession Book" (among the treasures to be sold at Sotheby's)
On the macabre side, you know my confession book? We as children I had uh he himself way back in 1870 or something, I don't know if they exist now, I think called my confession book. The first question in the one I had was, which everybody had to answer, was 20 questions. And the first question was: what's the best place to hang a bunch of mistletoe? And Uncle Jim's writing down was, the gallows. It's a wonderful tale I think, it takes the sort of macabre humor
