À atenção do senhor Pedro Mexia.

Ontem encontrei, na Literary Review, esta carta de alguém que decidiu antecipar-se aos escrúpulos daquela publicação:

BAD SEX

Dear Sir,
Having heard about the success of the London Review of Books singles nights, I wondered if it was time for the Literary Review to set up a personals page of its own? It might give your more scholarly readers a chance for some bad sex of their own.
Yours faithfully,

Dá gosto imaginar, todos aqueles literatos a faire cattleya.
