It has to be said.
If you want a truely meandering style no-one beats Edward Bulwer-Lytton, with his now infamous quote from Paul Clifford:
"It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents--except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets (for it is in London that our scene lies), rattling along the housetops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness."
Now, as to the quality of that work...that is another matter.
