LACOSTE ADVERT PRETTY GIRL.
GIVE IT UP.
YOU’RE NOT GOING TO CATCH THE FUCKING KITE.
It’s been like three years now.
(I initially wrote wiping your arse on a Gosse’s neck. Obviously remembering that famous scene in Father and Son.)
Hey – you should read Image of a Drawn Sword by Jocelyn Brooke. It’s hard to get hold of, but unbelievably fabulous. I’m telling you now that over the next two years we’ll be seeing the following:
a) Article by some guy on Guardian Book Blog about how Brooke’s a great neglected writer.
b) Article by minor novelist in Saturday Guardian about how Brooke’s a great neglected writer.
c) Republication by C&R or NYRB classics or someone.
d) Everyone pretending they were into it before me, which they weren’t (except you Tom; thanks again for the tip).
