How to use gainsay in a sentence?

  1. Lawrence Durrell:

    The first technology was good and I enjoyed the the book as a whole but the second tetralogy gradually seem to to ramble with sexual visuals but we're not very sane because as it got into the second book of that cat trilogy I suddenly realised that he wasn't really making much sense and I suddenly found myself being rather disappointed because the last thing I wanted to do was to find out that he was not mentally fit and although I'm not a psychologist professionally I've studied enough psychology to be able to tell when somebody is mentally unfit and I'm probably mentally unfit myself to some degree but not to that degree and impact has become a a celibate through an obsession of hygiene. I hope I'm wrong but I think I might well be right about him and I would like to know if there's any evidence that would gainsay what I have just said and will be left forever answer why he seemed to end up babbling rather than writing in that last book which incidentally I'm afraid I threw out because I didn't really like the back but I felt this feeling! But I knew I could never read it again!
