We went to casinos in Deauville, Trouville, Nice and other French towns and invariably we had to come home sooner than we planned because our money had run out. Fair enough. One goes into a gaming salon perfectly well aware that it is a jungle where welfare-state safety nets do not exist. That is the main attraction of gambling, the exposure to genuine drama. You win or you lose, and your character is put to the test in both eventualities. My father and I could never have won consistently, because we treated the whole thing too casually.
Never having opened the book since the day I’d bought it in Boscombe Arcade, I sat down to read it there and then. I was still reading it at three the next morning. Lord Beresford, whoever he might have been, was no harebrained crackpot. He gave a cool and factual assessment of roulette and his explanation for the failure of all players to win at it consistently.

When my parents moved to the south coast to take over a New Forest hotel near the Hampshire village of New Milton I went with them and took a job as a clerk with a local ﬁrm of builders’ merchants. Like so many people who have a vague idea they are destined for some special role in life, generally with little justiﬁcation, I was content to drift from day to day in humdrum jobs, waiting for The Sign that would tell me where my life was destined to lead.
