Basil Seal

“…Basil lay back on the divan and watched her with fascination. This was how
he liked to see women behave in moments of alarm. He rejoiced, always, in the
spectacle of women at a disadvantage: thus he would watch, in the asparagus
season, a dribble of melted butter on a woman’s chin, marring her beauty and
making her ridiculous, while she would talk and smile and turn her head, not
knowing how she appeared to him…”

Evelyn WaughPut Out More Flags (1942)
