Excerpt: Chapter 1. A PINK LADY, ACTUALLY. IT was raining hard the water seemed to be coming down out of a silver?fox?black sky in oyster?colored ropes an inch thick and this explained why no one was on the streets who did not have to be there. The traffic cop was standing in his black rain cape and gum boots on a corner two blocks from the Hotel Troy. But he had his head pulled down in his coat, and he was cussing his job. He did not notice the pink girl. Inside the Hotel Troy lobby, a few guests were sitting around in a damp lethargy. Not until the girl said loudly, ?Will someone get hold of Ten West Street for me please,? was anyone aware of her presence. By this time, of course, the girl was inside the lobby of the Hotel Troy. They stared at her. She was a girl, nicely long and nicely rounded, in a pale?blue frock, sheer hose, dark?blue pumps, and with a gray shawl held over her head and, except for her eyes her eyes had a flashing, haunted look, someone said later over and concealing her face. Not bad for shape. Not bad.
