Teaser Tuesday: The Razor's Edge
"She was outrageously made up, her cheeks rouged to the eyes and her eyelids, upper and lower, heavily blued; her eyebrows and eyelashes were thick with mascara and her mouth scarlet with lipstick. . . . She looked more of a slut than any woman there and I had a suspicion that she was not only drunk but doped."
The Razor's Edge by Somerset Maugham.
That's the mascaraed eyebrows scene that so stuck with me. Even though I didn't remember reading the book, when I got to that scene, I knew I had.
Poor Sophie MacDonald!
