Excerpt from Sicily Ann a Romance Upon the night before Sicily Ann left Virginia for Holulu she said an eternal farewell to Jimmy Fox. Nature, by way of reinforcement to Sicily Ann's entirely praiseworthy endeavors in that direction, contributed a new moon, virginally wan, a warm west wind, and a hint of rain on the air, like unshed tears. Isn't it nice, said Sicily Ann, to have the last night fair? Question! returned Jimmy Fox, without enthusiasm. Is the last night ever fair? Of course, said Sicily Ann; when it doesn't rain! H'm-m? Mere words, however, can never hope to reproduce that last soft rising syllable. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
