Colm Tóibín
















Speaking of sentences that don't quite add up, as I was doing in relation to Francis Stuart, here are two from Stuart's great admirer Colm Tóibín, whether or not in conscious homage to Stuart's non sequitur style I don't know. Both are from The Blackwater Lightship:

“Here, the county council had put huge boulders to protect the cliff, but they had no impact.”

“It’s very difficult to get rid of diarrhoea once it starts.”

You'll have to go a little deeper with your analysis mate. They seem perfectly cromulent to me.
