Booklicious: Getting Personal with the LRB

May 03, 2012


[The London Review of Books is Britain's most esteemed literary magazine. Published fortnightly, it features essays, reviews and the most outrageous personal ads ever set in type. The following is a selection from the latest issue.]

*Late 20s male, living north of London. Like all aspiring writers, would prefer Paris but have neither money nor mettle for relocation. Rather, have thus far settled for life of mundane pleasures and job stability. Less like Heathcliff, more Sancho Panza (sans corpulence). Seeking: female, close in age, willing to meet a man of no magnitude.

*Adventurous intellectual couple, late twenties, seek similar female to turn their Bloomsbury square into a triangle. Is this you? Send us a paragraph about yourself.

*Co-driver(s) sought to tour the Alvar Aalto buildings in Europe. Two weeks, 2K, France, Germany, Denmark, Finland, late June early July? I am a woman just under 50, you can be whatever you like so long as you can drive and are solvent. Not an architect in case you're wondering.
