The back cabin in ‘Eileen’
After days spent in Birmingham or Wolverhampton Cressy’s cabin, with its familiar bookshelves, seemed mercifully isolated from the fretful fever of human affairs. Here, so it seemed to me, I could step aside from the world for a few hours and regard it objectively as though from some other planet. Illusory though this sense of detachment and isolation might be, it acted as a great spiritual and mental stimulus which I found immensely valuable.
