Isn’t it all a bit vacuous, actually, saying this denim is cooler than that denim or whatever? No, actually I don’t think it is. I’m not describing fashion in the sense that Oscar Wilde meant [when he de­fined it as ‘a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months’]. I’m talking about people having a hunger for physical objects that are more genuine than most of the objects around them. In a sense, I am de­scribing a 21st-century Arts-and-Crafts mentality – which people like William Morris regarded as be­ing in some sense spiritual. People wanted genuine things: they wanted real cheese and real ale.

Actually, I’m kind of interested in African religions, both as they may have been and as they became encoded in Christianity, where you have overt Catholicism but living within it, sort of like a hermit crab, there is this other, much older religion that bears no resemblance to it. You call some entity ‘Jes­us’ because the master won’t beat you if you’re praying to Jesus, but actually you’re praying to something else entirely. And when you look into [these religions], they’re very beautiful, like lovely universes.

I had an experience of dis­location in a culture that was inherently xenophobic. Well, ‘xenophobic’ is not quite the word, because they were never confronted with actual foreigners – the next county would do, or some particular branch of your family would be­come ‘the other’ – and ‘the other’ more or less equal­led ‘the enemy’, or potential enemy. It was not a very friendly culture.
