…is what I read today, a short work of erotica by Pierre Louÿs, published posthumously in 1926. You can find the French original online here. This new English edition is translated by Geoffrey Longnecker and published by Wakefield Press.
It’s superb; the introduction by Longnecker is especially excellent. Every word of the book is a delight:
Do not say that the Red Sea got its name because it is shaped like a cunt; nor that Florida is the prick of America; nor that the Jungfrau no longer deserves its name since it has been mounted. These are indeed clever observations, but out of place in a child’s mouth.
