Daily Dose

From Break of Day, by Colette, translated by Enid Mcleod


"She merely raised her arm to smooth her hair with the flat of her hand.  Even without seeing her I should have known from this gesture that she was blonde, healthily and rather pungently blonde; blonde and upset, on edge -- there was no doubt of it."

From page 69, this translation
