Evidence

"On the sewing machine lay Jack"s library book, a dirty brown object disguised in a uniform binding with gilt numbers on the back. I picked it up, opened it at the first page, and began to read The Swiss Family Robinson. It is an understatement to say that I began to read. I stepped into another life. I was one of the family on the wrecked ship, passing through the barrier of words, enlarging my small suburban existence by this new dimension."

The 7 year old Church had just been given spectacles and he discovers that he can not only, for the first time, see the clock-face (it is twenty past six) but that he can read the words on the page of the book.
