Working-Class Promo II

There were a couple of nice reviews over the weekend. This one by Rowan Pelling in Saturday’s Telegraph was probably the most enthusiastic response to any of my books so naturally I’ve become a big fan of hers, and this by Andrew Martin in the New Statesman was pretty good too. It’s nice, I’m always more than apprehensive with a new publication, this sort of press is a real tonic.

    Rowan Pelling, is she the former editor of the Erotic Review?

  2. Stephen Foster says:

    Indeed she is, what of it?

    she could probably give you tips on how to not make your tongue bleed

    i like that short were so against the whole ‘middle class gayer’ thing but everyone* (this and borders at the least) seems to be highlighting it as a way to explain you.

    Having seen her on telly, I think she’d be more interested in tips on how to make his tongue bleed more.

    It wasn’t Short that was against it johnny – it was one non-fiction buyer at Waterstones. he was the only persdon in the world that was offended by it. Even Guardian jounalists were astonished to hear that story – this we know because some of them (Guardian jounalists) are also published by Short Books.

    “I think she’d be more interested in tips on how to make his tongue bleed more.”

    is she a stokie? interested in haaaard work boy, rather than skill and refinement?

    Pulis: I told the lads Nige, the ladies of Stoke-on-Trent don’t appreciate endless intricate and fancy build up around their love-button, leave that to the French or Italiaaaaans. Stoke ladies prefer an aaaard working and direct approach – repeated and aimless pounding up the middle. Triffic.

    Too graphic Mr P, and my stomach is not easily churned.

    Send me a mail reminding me of your address and I’ll sling the Potteries Karma Sootra manual in the post.
