Curved like a scimitar it was

Bronwyn is calling back copies of a book about cowboys.

"It looks innocent enough," she says. "It isn't."

By Jove, no.

One's already out on loan at Pottersbury Road.

"Don't worry about it," says Hedi, "Mrs. Johnson won't mind. She's happy enough sitting and reading anything and she's old enough not to turn a hair these days."

When they all get back they're going to go into the Housebound Library Collection.

"My ladies like a bit of smut," says Lippy. "The dirtier the better."

(as we say on this side of the pond).

It might actually be interesting to see you in spurs.

Was it about gay cowboys, though? Would that count as "smut" if one were an old lady?

"Interesting" isn't the word, Lavinia. "Risible" is.

Gadjo: some of the old dears would shock us both by their reading matter.
