Excerpt: PART FIRST ?Mimi Pinson est une blonde,? Une blonde que l'on connait; Elle n'a qu'une robe au monde, Launderirette! et qu'un bonnet!? IT WAS A FINE, SUNNY, showery day in April. The big studio window was open at the top, and let in a pleasant breeze from the north?west. Things were beginning to look shipshape at last. The big piano, a semi?grand by Broadwood, had arrived from England by ?the Little Quickness? (la Petite Vitesse, as the goods trains are called in France), and lay, freshly tuned, alongside the eastern wall; on the wall opposite was a panoply of foils, masks, and boxing?gloves. A trapeze, a knotted rope, and two parallel cords, supporting each a ring, depended from a huge beam in the ceiling. The walls were of the usual dull red, relieved by plaster casts of arms and legs and hands and feet; and Dante?s mask, and Michael Angelo?s alto?rilievo of Leda and the swan, and a centaur and Lapith from the Elgin Marbles on none of these had the dust as yet had time to settle.
