OK, that book meme; this volume was closest at hand from Le Biblioteca Turonistani:
From page 123:
"I don't know," she said. "I've never really been that fond of [see image]."
I tried to get her to talk more about this, but she wouldn't, except to say that she could never tell her family about any of this, at least not the [see image] part."
To prevent searchbots from tagging this blog as something it's not, I will let the visitor read the text from the photo below:
The book is "Self-Made Man" by Norah Vincent.
A very good read, by the way. The author is an [L-word], feminist, Manhattanite, journalist, so one would expect a certain, oh, shall we say, negative view of men? Au contraire! Her attitude, after a year of observing the world as a man, is something like, "Holy shit! I never dreamed it was this difficult! It's a harsh, cold world out there for men." ["The dears...." - Philadelphia Story, sorry]
Anyway, highly recommended.
Have your cake. . .
