    What taste is that?

    What does it mean “leisured literary tastes”? Does it mean poor or not sophisticated?

    From: “..the ambient temperature just right for a man of his leisured literary tastes”.

    Thank you in advance

    “Any comparison with a Siberian boiler factory he would have regarded as the ravings of an unhinged mind. Quite clearly, he found the shuddering vibration as soothing as the ministrations of the gentlest of masseurs, the roar of the engines positively soporific and the ambient temperature just right for a man of his leisured literary tastes”.
