Quandary Resolution 1057
kipple, turtle, tatterdemalion, Pyrrhic victory
Picking his way gingerly through a proliferating mound of household kipple - torn press cuttings, abandoned gadgets, moth-eaten clothing, disregarded sundries - he stumbled upon one mouldering box turned turtle, its contents spread adrift across the floor, with uppermost a bleached photo of his young self as a carefree tatterdemalion, whose Pyrrhic victory it had subsequently been to secure fame and fortune at the cost of all self-esteem.
