Description

Trechos do primeiro romance da série Enderby, "Inside Mr Enderby" (1963). Out in the gull-clawed air, New-Year blue, the tide crawling creamily in, Enderby felt better. He frowned down at his precise task like a surgeon saving the life of a bitter foe. Platonism could take in ideal breasts, an ideal underarm odour, an ideal unsatisfactory coitus, as well as the smooth-browed intellectual wraith of the old sonneteers. This morning he slashed cheeks, underlip, and Adam's apple: shaving-soap froth became childhood ice-cream sprinkled with raspberry vinegar.
