                 In a kind of
                                           reverse Proust–
                              degree of difficulty
                    2.7 on the Hans
                           Richter Scale—he
            was waiting for 
                    the tenth & final 
                                   volume of The 
                        Grand Piano to 
                    appear before
                            ordering the 
                          complete set 
                                            & then taking 
                                         to his bed to
                               spend the rest
                                               of his life 
                                 reading them entire.
