Bit of a laboured opening. It's not quite "It was the afternoon of my eighty-first birthday, and I was in bed with my catamite", is it?

(Never read Earthly Powers, but someone I knew as a student tried the line out on me without warning to see if I shared her admiration for the line. Being staid and bourgeois, I was just confused.)

A lot of fun giving Ari Fleischer a blowjob? That would merit hazard pay in my book.

Being staid and bourgeois, I was just confused.

If it was a 'she' who was quoting out of context that she had been in bed with her catamite, your confusion is understandable. I read Earthly Powers so long ago I no longer remember it clearly, but the impression I carry with me is of a very clever and entertaining writer waving a rake and yelling "You pesky kids get off my lawn" for about 800 pages.

Also, if you're going to write about giving Ari Fleischer blowjobs, you should put it below the fold with a trigger warning.


The Earthly Powers link is recursive. I found it clever and entertaining without the qualification.


Arse, I meant to link to Wikipedia.
