‘The day my laundry came back, I took out all my clothes and spread them around the room for Judy and me to look at. I was determined that for once, just once in my life, when I went to those readings, I would be wearing the ‘right’ thing. The right thing in this case had to be something general: something that wouldn’t type me. To my chagrin all my clothes stubbornly refused this neutrality, splitting themselves up resolutely into three categories: Tyrolean Peasant, Bar Girl and Dreaded Librarian. It looked hopeless.’
Elaine Dundy, The Dud Avocado
