There is no paradigm for this kind of place. Accidental Norbiton is contingent, marginal, superfluous, an ugly necessity; it is like the wires coiled under your desk, behind your bookcases; it is like the suitcases gathering dust under your bed, on top of your wardrobe; an adjunct to living, part of the logistics, the bureaucracy, never what you might call life itself, the movement and centre and focus of which seem to prevail elsewhere.
Perfect, then, for a life of accidental failure. Welcome to Norbiton

Anatomy of Norbiton is as yet incomplete; so far as I can tell it goes up to GASTRONOMICAL, but subsequent pages all have estimated dates of publication on them, so.
