Burgess is very much out of fashion these days on the logical grounds that he was something of a serenely and mildly racist sexist homophobic imperialist of the cheerful and well meaning variety He comes across much stubbornly Catholic and conservative than his prodigious philandering would lead you to believe and has a few casually deplorable things to say about women and brown people Despite his obvious mental gifts he is freuently forced to fall back on pleas of laziness or persecution to excuse various failures both academic or professional I enjoy his work because I like to learn and I like an author who can present an etymological history of the vast array of Malay words for copulation in one paragraph then a joke about Kandinsky in the next I own the second volume of his autobiography but I admit that upon finishing this one I feel no urgence to begin reading it It is no surprise that Burgess's autobiography contains a lengthy index I suspect I will consult this if I want a few pages of targeted wit and erudition and will perhaps dip into it from time to time for the pleasure of watching him perform but as a sustained act he rather overstays his welcome
