The Adventures of Sally (1922)

The Girl in Blue
One of those ghastly literary lunches.... This one was to honour Emma Lucille Agee who srote that dirty novel that's been seeling in millions in America...

Rodney Has A Relapse
"Rodney Spelvin was in for another attack of poetry. He had once been a poet, and a very virulent one too; the sort of man who would produce a slim volume of verse bound in squashy mauve leather at the drop of a hat, mostly on the subject of sunsets and pixies."
