Selected quotation

The literary-journalistic world in which Burgess flourished seems remote now. Today’s is more pluralist and fragmented – busier, too, with online reviews and blogs as well as book pages. Burgess claimed that the only response he ever had to the many reviews he wrote for the Yorkshire Post was from a woman disputing a passing claim he had made that British orchids have no smell. Reviews have little effect, he concluded, though a New Statesman review of one of his books once came in handy, by implying he was homosexual. At the time, a lady dentist who was treating his teeth had been making advances; when she proposed they make love in her surgery, he showed her the review, to prove she’d be wasting her time.
