Those members of the Consort who were not Roger Courage sat idle while Roger handled the enquiries, the first of which was evidently why Pino Fugazza's piece was called Partitum Mutante. This was one of many questions that Catherine had never thought to ask Roger, so she made the effort to listen to his reply.

The Courage Consort sang Partitum Mutante-all thirty-one and a half minutes of it, without a break-and they sang it rather well, all things considered. As always, when it came to the challenge of a real performance to an audience-even an audience of one-they moved Heaven and Hell to overcome their differences. Gesticulating balletically, Fugazza swayed before them, his slacks jingling as he strove to make himself understood in his own avant-garde version of English.

The Courage Consort Michel Faber 121pp, Canongate, £. 9. Michel Faber's heroines are women who have come adrift. They are abstractedly suicidal, stoically damaged, darkly amused; in the case of Isserley, sent across the galaxy to the Scottish highlands to harvest hitchhikers for upmarket otherworldly delis in Faber's first novel, Under the Skin, quite literally alienated.
