The night ends with Elizabeth's tear stricken apologies and Miranda sketching a scene in her graphic novel, the line
"after Lonagan's death, all of life seemed awkward to me. I'd become a stranger to myself"
seeming to reflect on her life at this moment (Mandel,105). (105-106)

Arthur and Clark met for dinner in London years later for Arthur's birthday. The public inbthe restaurant stare and whisper while they talk about Arthur's third divorce. It is when Arthur says the line "I've been indecently lucky" which he had used a month ago in an interview that Clark realizes he isn't at a restaurant with an old friend but rather a stranger. Arthur speaks animatedly, performing, knowing the two are being recorded. Clark thinks about the gulf of years between when they were 18 and 50. (110-112)
