Lunchtime read: Memories of My Melancholy Whores

Having failed to mark his 90th birthday with the virgin prostitute the journalist and bachelor starts to get a little bit introspective and decides to resign from his job as a columnist.

Having written in an old fashioned style the newspaper is not too keen to lose him because he has gone from being fashionable, despised and finally back to respected and appreciated.

The mistress of the whore house phones him up and offers the girl again as a birthday gift and after initially opting to turn her down the man accepts the offer and starts to get himself ready for round two.

There are some wonderful comments here about the way fashions come round and what can seem antiquated will return to popularity as long as it remains true to itself.

More tomorrow…
