Amusing Holly Quote

Holly Golightly says pg 76 ‘they’ve had the old clap-yo-hands so often it almost amounts to applause’. I found this rather amusing and it brings to mind many other euphemisms. Charlotte

  1. Hi Charlotte – very New Yorky I thought, that joke. There’s a really good line from Holly when she ‘s talking about Madame Trawler pg. 94, as yet I’m not sure what that particular profanity means to New Yorkers, but it caught me out – i think we’re finally seeing the real voice of Lulamae. It’s a nice contrast to some of the pretension of Holly. She seems defensive at this point and quite vulerable at this point – she seems to actually care what people thought of her.
