Peter, I'd forgotten the context! Though I have to admit I only know it from the television adaptation. I will get around to reading it one day!

The TV adaptation left out that moment... Bagshaw is in the home of a famous critic who is away seeing a play for review, in a book lined study, while the critic's wife reclines, naked on a sofa and Bagshaw, in the same state, approaches and speaks the line in a conversational tone. "Books do furnish a room". What else could he possibly say? Being Powell, it's recounted at second hand. The book is best read if you enjoy cruising through the literary world of the '40s and '50s. I do.
