From the Book:
Zach was early. He was always early for things. It was a
vice he was rather ashamed of, since he associated it with
middle class values and provincialism. Important people,
sophisticated people didnít have to arrive on time. Try as he
might, though, he couldnít quite shake the habit. Zach was too
afraid of missing something.
