Ch. 3: Mrs. Smith-Cotton Takes Advantage of the Situation
is a liberated woman, freed
by Jackson's death to pursue gaiety.
She has wealth and a certain beauty
of a B movie actress from the thirties.
Cocktail parties with much laughter and libations
please her immensely,
and it is easy, in her world, to pursue the lifestyle.
She may not have known it
but she was waiting
a long time for this—she isn't going to waste it.
She is good at making an entrance
and she knows what she wants.
