By everyone, except Mrs. Lochie, he was known as a man of restraint, reticence, and gravity; she alone had caught glimpses of him with the iron mask of determination off for a rest. This overwhelming aversion for the insignificant cone-gathers had taken him unawares; with it had come the imbecile frenzy to drive them out of the wood, the even more imbecile hope that their expulsion would avert the crisis darkening in his mind, and consequently the feeling of dependence upon them.
The Cone-Gatherers by Robin Jenkins is a beautiful book; Perkins is an extraordinary writer and this is one of the best books I’ve read this year.
