American novelist
(1873 - 1935)
  CHECK READING LIST (4)  

'I suppose I have hated her from the first moment I say her,' Monica Wilmott heard herself saying, and she saw Hester as she had first seen her, sitting in the open window of the Chelsea drawing-room against the background of the river; extraordinarily quiet, extraordinarily assured, with black eyebrows and a thin black cloak lined with red.
      - Dark Hester (ch. 1) [Books (First Lines)]

It was the evening of Madame Okraska's concert at the old St. James's Hall. London was still the place of the muffled roar and the endearing ugliness.
      - Tante (pt. 1, ch. 1) [Books (First Lines)]

A clock struck eight, a loud yet distant clock. The strokes, Alix thought, seemed to glide downwards rather than to fall through the fog and tumult of the station, and, counting them as they emerged, they were so slow and heavy that they made her think of tawny drones pushing their way forth from among the thickets of hot thyme in the jardin potager at Montarel.
      - The Little French Girl (pt. 1, ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]

"You are an artist, Monsieur?"
      - The Old Countess (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]
