Newt knows that the rainforests are in danger. He knows that hamburgers cost trees, and that whales are dying, and that health food is good for you. And, mostly, he knows it's important to Anathema. So he keeps his mouth shut and eats the nut cutlets, wholegrain bread and sugar-free, honey-sweetened seed cakes Anathema sets before him. And she smiles at him, thinking how lucky she is that he shares her convictions.
He misses the succulent taste of meat, the richness of gravy, the smoothness of chocolate cake, but he loves Anathema more.
But it's Christmas. And he's cravingturkey.
