I Will Never Stop Quoting DAWN POWELL

________________________________________________________________________________________________


If she was restless now, it was not that
she wanted an affair for lust's sake.
She had a genuine distaste for sexual
intimacy and hated to sacrifice 
a facial appointment for 
a mere frolic in bed.

But there were so many things
to be gained by trading on sex
and she thought so little 
of the process that she itched
to use it as currency once again,
trading a half-hour in bed
for a flattering friendship,
a royal invitation...
power of whatever sort
appealed to her.
   
 A Time To Be Born
(1942)
Quote is from page 24
of this edition.

The next Dawn Powell quote is
here.
