In the world of the Victorian Club, it does not do for a gentleman to be seen to take an interest in any member of the working classes. How dreadfully inconvenient then, when the narrator’s waiter, begins to display alarming tendencies towards having a personality, a home life, emotions, and fears of his own. The last thing any respectable gentleman should do is permit himself to be drawn into this other dubious world … let alone entertain emotions such as interest or pity for the underclass. So our gentleman is at great pains to avoid all of this. Great pains.

Author Bio: J. M. Barrie

James Matthew Barrie (1860–1937) was born in Scotland, the son of a weaver and the ninth of ten children. His mother saw to it that he was educated, despite the family’s low income. He studied at the University of Edinburgh and spent two years on the Nottingham Journal before settling in London as a freelance writer in 1885. His short stories, essays, and novels were well received, and he began to gain a fine reputation as a playwright. His most enduring work is Peter Pan, which is based on stories he made up for children in his neighborhood.
