He really was the Jackie Collins of his day. (Notice how I wrote "re-reading", snobs never, ever, read anything for the first time.)
I'm re-reading Trollope now.

I'm reading Wuthering Heights for the first time, in Arabic. Cathy keeps snagging her burqa on the heather.
Rikkor are you catching up on your Trollope before she rewrites Austen.
'The American Senator' by any chance? Not one of his best. Have you any interest in Fanny?
Duncan, how droll. Never read F. Trollope. I'm reading "The Duke's Children" on an e-reader. Beyond boring and dragged out. And, not too much in the way of royalties for old Mr. T..
Greg, in this case, I hope that "burqa" isn't slang for "taint".
Simon, I think they meant to write "trollop rewrites Austen."
You've lost me with the "Isn't slang for taint"
Is it something like the two Brummies looking at a ruin in the Wye valley
"Tintern Abbey" says one
"Yes it is" says the other "It says 'To the abbey' on that sign over there."
"Taint" is an American vulgarism for the vag area.
Probably more my area of expertise.
Strictly speaking it's the perineum, rather than the vag(ina). The vagina is what I call my love tunnel, the moist, sensitive, delicious internal channel from the vulva to the cervix, whereas the 'taint' is the area of skin between the anus and the vulva.
From the expression 'taint me anus, taint me vulva'
I was just saying to my super-hot Japanese girlfriend Akiko in the shower last night, as we were soaping each others firm breasts and buttocks, 'do you want me to give your anus, vulva and taint a quick once-over with the sponge so it's nice and clean for our hot lesbian love-making which will follow this shower?'
Between moans of ectasy as my fingers caressed and teased her pink erect nipples, she whispered 'better had give it a bit of a polish. I just had a massive dump and a slash. Since our hot lesbian love-making usually involves lots of cunnilingus and rimming it's probably best to be on the safe side.'
Don't forgetting what means taint also meaning tasty salty sweaty skin between anus and scrotum on middle aged balding English man.
From his saying 'taint my anus, taint my scrotum'.
Don't make me mistake, I like lesbian activities with SugarTits69 and making love pleasure with lady very well. But sweaty man with us make me exciting very well too. Even if it is he personal hygiene not so good, maybe my hot girlfriend SugarTits69 and I can make squeaky clean in jacuzzi.
Is it think so strange? But how to find nice sweaty little bit fat man on Internet? It's big my problem, but I fight.
Thank you very much.
You’re never too old to learn. Thank you for the information Ms Tits69 and Akiko. I’d love to be able to thank you properly but I fear I’m not what Akiko is looking for in a man. I’m not balding or fat and am a little past the middle section of my life. This is a shame as the last Japanese person I had any social intercourse with was coming at me with hate in his eye, a samurai sword in his hand and the scream of Banzai on his lips. So I shot him.
I shouldn’t mention the war but this has brought back memories of the time I was in Iwo Jima. Sitting on the beach, trying to eat my packed lunch, it was ridiculously busy and noisy with bombs going off, bullets whizzing past and marines digging holes everywhere, so I decided to walk up a nearby hill. When I got to the top it was beautifully peaceful, the sun had come out and it had turned into quite a lovely day. I thought I’d do a spot of sunbathing. I didn’t have a cossie with me but as there was no one about I stripped off. I was laying there, on my front, dozing when a bunch of GIs sneaked up behind and planted a flagpole in my bum. They all thought it was very funny but it didn’t half smart, until I could get some cream from the doc.
I should have been on the cover of Time magazine but they air-brushed me out.
Greg, that made history come alive for me.
"Humber Bridge", which in the UK links Hull to Grimsby, has become a euphemism for the taint because it joins the shitty place to the fishy place.
I think Humber Bridge is the code name used for Camilla's funeral plans.
So what was "Tainted Love" all about then...?
I've seen it refered to as "the twitter", because it's between the "twat" and the "shitter".
"Elements of "twat" and "shitter" combining to make something not quite as good as either."
You boys and your "knowledge" of lady-holes. Bless. I recall a former paramour of mine being surprised when, in his early thirties, I enlightened him to the fact that girls have different holes for different roles - he had previously been under the impression that babies and wee-wees all emanated from the same tunnel. Actually, that was the least of his anatomical misapprehensions. It didn't last.
And it says a great deal about this place that Rikkor's highbrow literary thread has been hijacked by talk of twinkies. I've missed this place. And Trollope.
We've missed you, too.
You can see that the tone has been elevated by anonymously calling a person gay in the tags. If I were a little younger, I would be vaguely interested in finding out the identity of this closet case. But now, not so much.
Does it follow that Jackie Collins is the Trollope de nos jours?
I saw La Collins on TV the other night. She has sold 400 million books in her career. So, I think she is more the Charles Dickens of our time.
