Last chapter, penultimate paragraph where the main character re-writes history and has his girlfriend put "Ladies of the Canyon" on the record player.

Page 319
Closed curtains again. Finished tea. Put J. Mitchell Ladies of the Canyon very softly on my small record player, got into bed, put arm round Mike and fell asleep again at once, hearing the rain beat down outside.

For some reason dreamed of sparkling Greek sea, Aegean blue, with wooden boats, their white sails filled with love.

Thank you, William!
