We were very sensitive about colours at that time

Metroland, a novel by Julian Barnes, is about two school-age boys growing older in the world. The novel begins and ends with sodium street lighting.

One of my favourite poems “Two Girls Singing” also includes such artificial lighting: “by yellow lights tormented”.
