Abstract

There are many transient pains in Derek’s life. He is weak and withdrawn and passive, most of the time, and he has been beaten on the streets for saying strange things, he has been robbed of his disability cheques on several occasions, his nose has been broken. He does not expect much better from the world, and he doesn’t think much, or for long, about all the small terrors and abuses.

(Helwig 2008: 232)
