On a delightful 20th century Odyssey to Ithaca, Golding is offered the choice of fish or meat.  He explains what prompted him to opt for the former. 

“You like fish, yes?  Maybe meat?”  Vanya removed a lid.  From the depths of the saucepan the heads of three lambs gazed towards each other with profound melancholy. We thought we like fish.
