Out-Of-Context Literary Weirdness

From the book I just started, Heaven by Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen:

He knew that there would be squids in the lemon trees again, and most likely crabs in the sagegrass as well.

Like all of No-Moon’s sailors, Second-best Sailor always carried a piece of his wife with him, locked away in a mesh closet in his cabin so that the waters could flow over her and keep her healthy. A wifepiece was the best way to maintain mental equilibrium and physical condition on the long voyages away from the home lagoon.

…Second-best Sailor’s father, Talkative Forager, had won a sailor suit in a game of float-the-cube.

And that’s just in the first twelve pages! I have high hopes.
