Example

\setuppapersize[A5]

The Gibbelins eat, as is well known, nothing less good than man. Their evil 
tower is joined to Terra Cognita, to the lands we know, by a bridge. 

\setupnarrower[left=1cm,right=3cm]

\startnarrower
    (default, middle=0.5cm) Their hoard is beyond reason; avarice has no use 
    for it; they have a separate cellar for emeralds and a separate cellar for 
    sapphires; they have filled a hole with gold and dig it up when they need it. 
\stopnarrower


\startnarrower[left,right]
    (1cm left, 3cm right) And the only use that is known for their ridiculous 
    wealth is to attract to their larder a continual supply of food.
\stopnarrower

\setupnarrower[middle=1cm]
\startnarrower
    (1cm middle) In times of famine they have even been known 
    to scatter rubies   abroad, a little trail of them to some city of Man, and 
    sure enough their larders would soon be full again.
\stopnarrower
