A Post-coital Embrace that Lingers ’til Dawn

I received Roving Jay’s review of Perking the Pansies this morning. I needed a stiff drink to calm me down (I made do with strong coffee – even I don’t sup for breakfast). Jay has a written a magical and delicious review. I’m truly flattered and rather humbled. I thought I’d share some of it with you.

For those of you who follow my Bodrum Travel Blog, you know I have a penchant for Top 5 lists, so in honour of the launch of Jack’s first book, I’ve put together a Top 5 list of metaphors to describe my comparison of “Perking the Pansies” the Blog and “Perking the Pansies” the Book:

  • Whereas Jack’s blog is tipsy small-talk, over cheap warm plonk and soggy canapés; Jack’s book is a candle-light dinner, and a heart-to-heart with a trusted confidante.
  • Whereas Jack’s blog is an endless bucket of salty popcorn you absent-mindedly snack on between meals; Jack’s book is a dark chocolate truffle you roll your tongue, to prolong the experience
  • Whereas Jack’s blog is face-puckering tequila, a suck on a lemon and lick of salt; Jack’s book is a full-bodied Bordeaux, maturing and breathing in a crystal cut goblet
  • Whereas Jack’s blog is a frantic knee-trembler with Tabitha the Tart, Jack’s book is a post-coital embrace that lingers ’til dawn
  • Whereas Jack’s blog is an erratic spin on a dodgem carousel, Jack’s book is a memorable limo ride with leather-clad seats

Big thanks Jack for my chauffeured journey through his Pansy field.

Climb aboard, your own journey awaits…

Thank you, Jay.

  1. Thanks for grabbing my soundbites! This post probably won’t get as much attention as “Pussy Lovers” … even though I did add Tabitha, and her sullied reputation to the mix!


  2. I am eagerly awaiting this to be available on amazon.com in the US (Dec. 22nd!) so that I can gift it to my grandma in NY. She has taken up all books on my adopted homeland and I think your will be refreshing amongst all those dry political and history books she’s found in the public library.


  3. I´m blown away on two counts. One, the obviously incredible book you´ve written, Jack and two, the fabulous review which is a piece of high art in itself! It´s all a joy to see and HUGE congratulations, Jack.
