Two Cables to Kansas City
Joanna Howard

Sinister but handsome Lex, amateur boxer, holds powerful sway over young girls. But succumbs to the charms of Mamie or Mimi de Coeur and her mesmerists. Her strange talents still famous to lovers of the exotic across Parisian hot spots. I feel awful about Lex! What a rotten shame.

Joanna Howard is the author of ON THE WINDING STAIR, a collection of stories. She teaches at Brown University.
