I found this book in a "junk shop" and fell in love with both the title and dustcover. I must confess that I have not read the book, but, the intro on the cover page is wonderful in so many ways. Context at the time ment something way different then it does today, but it was still very racey and titillating.
"Some like life hot, some like it cold.
Peggy liked it gay.
Her mother had been gay. "Gay, like a poppy waving" was the way Uncle Tom Thaxter put it. And when the chance to be gay arrived, Peggy Shannon grasped it, unhesitatingly. Honey-colored legs twinkled her from Carterer, Pa., to New York, revue fame, Jericho Pike swank, Reno notoriety-and back again.
Just what does "being gay" mean?
Peggy learned the answer. But was she an under-sexed fool, or an extremely wise woman?
Can the book be as good as this?
Next we have the dedicatation............
TO
the honey-colored limbs of all Trojan Women (including the Argive Helen) with exception of noble Andromache. For, as Ovid declares: "In the opinion of most, Andromache was too large. Only to Hector was she of moderate size."
What ever the hell that all ment! I have got to read this book.
