The cat threw up on Louis MacNeice. I moved on to Theodora Fitzgibbon (With Love, 1982), who though air-headed is nice. Louis will dry out eventually, but will I want to go back to him ? Looking forward to: The City & the City.
How appropriate of the cat to puke on Louis. He once won a competition amongst the regulars at the Fitzroy Tavern to think of the most off-putting name for a pub with the entry “The Dog Returns”.
Hi Andrew. I think the cat was puking less directly on Louis than metonymically on me–here’s two dinners on yr damn book, Mickey-boy. I was quite enjoying it, too, the book that is. But Theodora has her attractions, many of them actually on show.
