Cigarettes And Chocolate

"The day I stopped talking was one of those perfect days we have in England.

They come in the spring and in the autumn, differently, the one full of entrance, the other full of exit...

I'd spoken to them all, in turn, carefully, loving them all; like suicide in a way, to stop talking."

Gemma's unexplained silence is the catalyst for a reaction amongst her friends and lovers both unfaithful and unrequited, which starts as mild irritation but becomes increasingly uncontrolled as her passive but forceful refusal to speak drives them to distraction.
