“there was a daily session which usually took the form of Tom seizing about half a dozen national newspapers, reading the headlines,  getting us laughing and interested,  and quite on the spur of the moment, impulsively hitting on a theme that he thought would be productive. For instance, how people hold their hands, the number of sugar lumps that people pop into their mouths at restaurants…..anything.” (Humphrey Spender)
