Burgess says it in one sentence


“I’m so puritanical that I can’t describe a kiss without blushing.”

Picked up from Paris Review’s tweet and then a hasty reach to the shelf for Burgess’ collection with a tag line ‘A Personal Choice by Anthony Burgess’ to look for all that he has read and recommends reading! List includes R K Narayan’s The Vendor of Sweets.

Published – 1984. Professor dumps it. Student picks it. Life executes this transfer in a roundabout way, though a used books bookstore. All in the city. These ways. These stories.
