Books, Foreigners, Self-referential

Fair warning

04.11.14 | Comment?

This year and last have not been auspicious if you are one of my favorite writers.  First Iain Banks died last year.  Now Sue Townsend has passed away.  Adrian Mole and I were roughly contemporaries, if not exactly equally neurotic.  I remember laughing out loud at this:

The stupid dog is back.  I am not taking it for a walk until its hair grows back on its shaved paws.  My father looked pale when he came home from the vet’s, he kept saying “It’s money down the drain,” and he said that from now on the dog can only be fed from leftovers from his plate.

This means the dog will soon starve.
