Jingle Bells
Have you read the Pynchon?

Lonely Heart

1861978294 Here's one for my writer friends.

Literary agents!  Save time when considering a manuscript by not bothering to read it at all.  Instead, set two beetles to race across the front page - one, a crippled, three-legged blind beetle named 'Accept', the other a steroid-taking model of beetle athleticism, wearing the very best beetle roller-skates, being pulled by a team of 16 beetle-sized horses and called 'Destroy Every Dream This Man Ever Had'.  Whichever beetle wins decides the fate of the author.  For a full set of rules and a licence to play (patent pending), write to sobbing, separated, newly alcoholic, chain-smoking man, 38, on pills for his nerves.  Box no 3524.

They call me naughty Lola.

On behalf of your writer friends may I thank you for yet another piece of literary upliftment!

BTW - have you seen the various posts about some kind of gig on 9th Dec at this really good bookshop in Crystal Palace?
