...on a script of a book initially begun over a decade ago. It made me realise just how much has changed. Social attitudes are so much more tense, everyday relationships less relaxed, words and gestures and statements are charged with new and often nastier meanings, there is a greater sense of sexual innuendo. Above all, children, especially adolescents, have changed: this is noticeable when you are among some of them in a large random group - for example on public transport - where extreme anger over trivial things, routine use of obscenities, and inability to articulate sensitive or mildly complex ideas, is often evident.
