  1. From a 2014 Guardian article:

    “Luckily, [James Booth] doesn’t lose sight of the savage comic brilliance of Larkin’s epigrams, whether on life (‘life is slow motion dying’), sex (‘almost as much trouble as standing for parliament’, ‘like asking someone else to blow your nose for you’) or his own appearance (‘an egg sculpted in lard, with goggles on’).”
