There is no cannibalism in the British navy, absolutely none, and when I say none, I mean there is a certain amount.
The fences keep slipping underneath the dunes. Howrah Beach. April 2012.
Just the one review this week, Polish authors Witold Gombrowicz's Pornografia. Essentially the tale of two bored (and filthy-minded) old men who find themselves in small-town Poland during the occupation in 1943. The two central characters indulge in a world of their own vices as the world around them is collapsing - in both a political and cultural sense.
It is an odd book in many ways, and quite slow-moving. Only for the patient.
