"And there it is:  the open tang, the calling, the smell of the sea.  Such a miracle, at the end of the Brighton line, with the town stacked behind me, and behind that all the weight of England, in her smoke and light, jammed to a halt here, just here, by the wide smell of the sea."

- The Gathering, Anne Enright
