Australia: the beach

By the time Burgess caught up with D.J. Enright in Singapore, the professor of English was

resigning, along with other expatriates, from the university.

Talking of Australia, Enright told Burgess: ‘You’ve been to worse places.’ Down under, Burgess found that this was

an understatement. This was the country for young Andrea [Burgess’s stepson] to grow up in, bare brown toes splaying on the beaches under the sun.

Australian women, Burgess noted with delight, were

well-built and beautiful.

He was particularly interested in

a very beautiful waitress, with sumptuous long legs exposed in a miniskirt,

who

leaned over a table to collect a plate and displayed those legs to the limit.

Burgess was, he confesses,

unholily moved.
