John Sherwin comments:

This vignette is a thrilling account of a brick wall. It has everything a vignette should have: sharp appreciation of a moment in time; precise use of language; unobtrusive alliteration; a quiet but insistent narrative flow; moments of reflection with an undercurrent of action. Having read it many times, I don’t have to go to the wall in question;
I am there.
