Wilkie Collins Broke My Heart

I’ve just finished reading Wilkie Collins’ THE WOMAN IN WHITE. I suppose the time will come when I’ll stop singing the title to this tune, which I invite you to enjoy, if you have 10 minutes to spare. It has Edward Everett Horton in it, so that’s a plus.

I posted about one disappointment in the book at Fatal Foodies today. The other, I can only hint at, in case you would like to read the book yourself, which you can do free from Project Gutenberg. I can only say that one of the main characters is named Marian. And now I’m wondering if that’s where the name got into the family.

WRITING PROJECT: What’s the story behind your name? Your main character and/or villain’s name?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    My stars! That dress (those dresses — is it more than one?)

    This must be pre-code.

    Though I did like The Lady in White. Many’s the year ago.

      I know! I was so bemused by the grapes on their butts, I almost didn’t even notice anything else. What a crazy-go-nuts ten minutes, eh?
