” ‘I can’t help thinking how much your father would have enjoyed this occasion. Whatever his drawbacks as a parent, you must admit that he never lost his sense of humour.’

‘Easy not to lose what you never had.’

‘Oh I disagree. He saw the funny side of everything.’

‘He only saw the funny side of things that didn’t have one. That’s not a sense of humour, just a form of cruelty.’ ”

– Edward St Aubyn, At Last
