Peter Clarke (1929 - )
Robinson Crusoe

The idea occurred to me to have a fan to complement
my goat skin outfit. There's nothing like being
trendy, even in the middle of the wilderness. Why
Friday says I'm an executive old fool. "Why worry
about making fashion statements?" he asks. "We
never get visitors. Who are you hoping to impress?"
He's quite happy walking around the island everyday
with hardly a stitch on. But that is so
unstylish, so... Third world.
