Synopsis
I WAS IN Paris when Norma Delanay died. I'd decided to write a novel., and when I told Mother, she said, "A novel, Nickie dear? At nineteen? Well, why not? The young eye—so penetrating. Go then to Paris. That's where the best books get written." Pam and Gino and even Uncle Hans protested that if I could write a novel at all it would come out just as well in Southern California and Pam did a lot of muttering about "wild extravagance". They didn't get anywhere, of course. No one ever got anywhere with Mother. The more the idea of my being a Parisian writer registered with her, the more it slayed her. "The Left Bank ... La Vie de Boheme ... A little demode, but so good for a growing boy. . . ." Next morning she drove me herself to the L.A. International Airport, wearing lounging pyjamas and a Royal Pastel mink coat. She cried a little, kissed me with great warmth and signed autographs for awe-struck air hostesses. "Be good, Nickie darling. Write a lovely book and write it quickly, because I will miss you. But do not put in descriptions. The dome of Sacre Cosur floating like a bubble over the rooftops. . . . Old women with mittens selling chestnuts. ... So boring."
