My book: Trawler: A Journey through the North Atlantic by Redmond O'Hanlon
Alister Hardy, as my mother might have said, was "not the marrying kind." (And yes, it's true, I thought, the unleashed or even one-eighth-unleashed subconscious throws up scum and euphemisms and cliches because it deals not in advanced words, but in the primitive power of images, cave-paintings, pictures, rituals, inner photographs clicked by emotions we want to forget.) "Look Alister," his perplexed tutor at Oxford had said to him, "Of course you can solve the small matter of the existence of God one day, but that's for later in your career, dear boy, and you've done so well in your finals, and it's obvious to all of us that you love fish – so how about a doctorate study of plankton, instead?"
Phew! Those sentences were long…… and the paragraph is still going.
