TWELVE‘What,’ Slater began, ‘is your name?’‘Leopold Bloom.’‘Where do you live?’‘7 Eccles Street, Dublin.’‘What is your occupation?’‘I am employed by the Freeman’s Journal to sell advertising.’‘Have y...ou seen the body that the jury have viewed?’‘I have.’‘Do you recognise the deceased woman?’‘I did. I mean, I do.’‘What was her full name?’‘Marion Tweedy Bloom.’Roland Slater had been through this rigmarole a thousand times. He had the pace off pat, deliberate enough to allow the clerk to record every word but not so studied as to irritate the jury. Neither threat nor tedium evident in his tone, he addressed the witness in a manner more avuncular than theatrical.‘What relation was the woman to you?’‘She was my wife.’‘Where did she live?’‘With me in 7 Eccles Street.’‘Did she have an occupation?’‘She sang professionally from time to time but had no regular employment other than that of housewife.’Whether following Sullivan’s advice or his own inclination to be infernally polite, Bloom answered with just the right note of deference.MoreLess
