Kingsley Amis

The Alteration


Of all the choristers at the Cathedral Basilica of St George, he is the angel - the one whose voice could only have been made in heaven. Hubert is a nice, rather timid ten-year-old boy. It stands to reason that Hubert's glorious voice must be preserved at all costs. So castration is clearly the only answer.
