Allusion is not Illusion

You'll pry my books off my cold, dead body. By the time you shift them all I'll be flat and dessicated.

The Five-Minute Marriage - Joan Aiken No offense, Regency characters, but y'all need to stop getting it on with your cousins. The only relationship in this book involving unrelated persons was the old widowed folks! And all the multiple/secret/questionable marriages had me kind of confused, but weren't Fitz and Elaine related twice over? And who marries their brother's baby mama?

This was like the daytime TV of the past -- except for Aiken's tasteful prose.
