I had found Susan in a tight black dress, her legs sprawled under a dinky table. Her eyelids were blued and her mouth was a scarlet blotched.
She looked tense, alive and vicious. She was a dope addict.
Previously published as The Gift Of Glory. This may very well be the only back cover of a book that contains the words “dinky” and “dope addict.”
