The few times he did ask me to his home in the evenings, he also included other staff or visitors. These were mainly social events, so a quiet conversation wasn’t likely. Being at Melrose was a totally different experience with Max and a frustrating one at that. Looking back, I’d have to say that I saw much more of him on his annual visits than when I was working for him.
