A call to the clerisy: what I am reading

Great book, interesting life. His pals are fascinating too. Look for the biography on Rex Whistler, written by his brother Laurence. Rex was a queer who fucked Tallulah Bankhead when she was very young and living in London. 'The first blonde bush I ever saw' he commented.

I like your taste and I'd like so much to see your short reviews of the books you present here.

Reading was my job but,as I don't have as much time for it now as I used to,I made my reading list quite selective.

Yes, great book! I am really enjoying it. He certainly knew a lot of people. I will look for the Whistler bio. Another bio I want to read is about Beverley Nichols. His first (and still in-print) book, was illustrated by Whistler...

You are always really sweet to me Nicco! I will do my best not to disappoint! :)
