BEEFCAKE BLUES - MAR 25 - 4.06pm
Attended a talk about an hour ago entitled “Heartthrobs: A History of Women and Desire”
I mean, who wouldn’t?
But as Simon Cowell would say, “I don’t mean to be rude…”.
Which means it was very Vicar of Dibley, pink marshmallowy, locker-room giggly (in an Enid Blyton sort of way) and about as hard-hitting as a Mills and Boon fling between a tortured Mill owner and an orphaned tea girl.
More whimsical than literary.
JUST THINK OF THIS AS A LITERARY ADVENT CALENDAR… WITH, AS OF TODAY, 33 WINDOWS LEFT TO OPEN!
WITH JUST SIX-AND-A-BIT WEEKS TO GO, IT’S OKAY TO START DROOLING…
IT’S TIME TO STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING, GET OUT A RED PEN, STUDY THE FORM AND START PLANNING…
