Mr Kurtz? He alive and living in Twickenham
'David, think of Joseph Conrad and Mr Kurtz,' Kay told me when we crossed Richmond Bridge. 'You're entering an area of almost total deprivation.' 'Twickenham? The heart of darkness?' 'You'll be shocked.' 'Tennis clubs, bank managers, the Mecca of rugby?' 'Twickenham. A zone of intense spiritual poverty.'
