Subject:        Prospero's (Porn) Book

Richard Burt's report about a pornographic remake based upon Prospero's
Books prompts me to remark that the original was a close run thing. And
from what I heard from someone who acted in it, so were the goings on
(and comings) on the set. Is that your pen there Prospero or is your
staff just pleased to see me?

What I'd give to be fifty again!

Best wishes,
Graham Hall

In deference to Terence Hawkes, I will count this among the very best
jokes I have failed to understand. I'm curious, but explanations might
spoil the moment.
