“Years ago, I sat in the replica Titanic deckchair in the Maritime Museum in Halifax. Later, when I wrote ‘The Unthinkable Shoes’ it was easy to slip into a fantasy where one of my characters drinks tea, sheltered from a brisk crosswind on one of the promenade decks – a woman also sheltered from the event that will soon devastate her life. Tea in a deckchair would never be the same, for her or for me.” – author V Knox
