apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.

I’m in on this feud and I have chosen my side.

MARA WILSON, YOU HAVE MY SWORD.

And my bow.

Well, E.L. James has it wrong; it’s Ana Steele who’s the sad fuck in this case.

Short stories by Franz Kafka
~bought at 22 Golden Lane, Prague

Farewell, farewell! but this I tell
To thee, thou Wedding-Guest!
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.

He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;
For the dear God loveth us,
He made and loveth all.

The Mariner, whose eye is bright,
Whose beard with age is hoar,
Is gone: and now the Wedding-Guest
Turned from the bridegroom’s door.

He went like one who hath been stunned,
And is of sense forlorn:
A sadder and a wiser man,
He rose the morrow morn.

I would read these

I feel a bit playful, so I thought why not make this?

Hi, I've followed your blog for some time and I always enjoy seeing your recommendations and I was wondering if you could suggest any gay literature, I've never read any except for Allen Ginsberg poems and was wondering what you thought would be a good starting point as the subject is personal and interesting to me. — Asked by Anonymous

Thanks so much! I haven’t read many I’m afraid (and the ones I have read are YA), but I really enjoyed David Levithan’s Two Boys Kissing and I own a copy of The Miseducation of Cameron Post.

Maybe Anonymous should see if they are interested in novels by Alan Hollinghurst or David Leavitt.
