Reading Experience:

'Have been trying to read Solent Wolf [sic] again -- duck-weed and spittle unrelieved [...] No wonder that those Hardyesque fungi, the Powys [brothers T. F. and John Cowper], have never got anywhere. Patiently advertising their own decay and searching the hedgerows for simples. Can't go to bed with anyone, only talk and think it over, don't know that lust and tenderness bring relief.'
