I think they are worried that my grandfather would infect me with some incurable dreaminess from which I’d never recover- that these fantasies were somehow inoculating me against more practical ambitions – so one day my mother sat me down and explained that I couldn’t become an explorer because everything in the world had already been discovered. I’d been born in the wrong century, and I felt cheated.”
