About Book

Book Description
1917. With frontispiece by James Montgomery Flag. Hughes, prolific playwright, novelist and screenwriter, entered American film in 1914 as a story writer for Vitagraph and other early studios. He adapted many of his plays and novels to the silent screen including We Can't Have Everything. This novel follows the marital entanglements and disentanglements of Charity Coe Cheever and the infamously rich Jim Dyckman. The more they untangle one knot, the faster more confusing knots appear!

Download Description
Kedzie was proud to know people who had been as famous as these two said they had been, but Bottger and Jambers used to fight bitterly over their respective schools of expression. Bottger insisted that the buck-and-wing and the double shuffle and other forms of jiggery were low. Jambers insisted that the ballet was immoral and, what was more, insincere. Mrs. Bottger was furious at the latter charge, but the former was now rather flattering. She used secretly to take out old photographs of herself as a slim young thing in tights with one toe for support and the other resting on one knee. She would gloat over these as a miser over his gold; and she would shake her finger at her quondam self and scold it lovingly--"You wicked little thing, you!" Then she would hastily move it out of the reach of her tears. It was safe under the eaves of her bosom against her heart.
