Well that’s just put me off my toast…

‘Beauty Story’ by Luke Jennings, p.66. Context: A man and a woman are slow dancing and describing the sex they would like to have with each other.

‘Tell me about her breasts.’

‘Well, they are smallish’, I began, ‘and at last count there were two of them…’ It seemed that his arms had been around me forever. […]

‘And tell me about these nipples’ […]

‘Mediumish’, I said, ‘You could safely cover each one with the top of a hundred-and-seventy-five gram jar of Marmite. And a sort of dark cinnamon brown.’



Mmm, Marmite….

I can’t bring myself to type up any more of the awfulness. Or to read much more of the book, if I’m honest. That’s the problem with charity shop books: there’s a chance they were given to the charity shop because they’re not very good.

I love to read comments, so please share what's on your mind! I try my best to reply. If you want a quick response to a question please tweet me @emdawgb :)
