Then again

Then again, Drop City (TC Boyle) one of my favorite books, begins with the line “The morning was a fish in a net,” and Cloudstreet (Tim Winton) has “The sun was in the sea” on the third page, so I must remember that it is possible to use “was” well. It is simply a matter of picking the right moment, rather than letting was trample into all the moments itself, like a pig loose in the garden.
