La joyeuse vallée

Alice de Janzé at age 20 (1919), in Chicago.

"Wide eyes so calm, short slick hair, full red lips, a body to desire. The powerful hands clutch and wave along the mandolin and the crooning somnolent melody breaks; her throat trembles and her gleaming shoulders droop. That weird soul of mixtures is at the door! her cruelty and lascivious thoughts clutch the thick lips on close white teeth. She holds us with her song, and her body sways towards ours. No man will touch her exclusive soul, shadowy with memories, unstable, suicidal"

Merci à Tristan Ranx pour m'avoir fait découvrir la "Happy Valley"
