“It is Sunday. The weekend, that three-day festival of attrition, is done. Sunday is the day of purgation and redress; of tenderised brain cases and see-sawing stomachs and hollow pledges to never, ever get that twisted again.”

“I don’t think any other animal does rape,”
Colin Barrett, The Dolphin

“it is soothing to listen to the radio static bristle of the rushing water.”
Colin Barrett, Young Skins
