Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) wanted to find an identity outside motherhood.
Then Yvette, who is married to an older intellectual, undoes her skirt and waits for Salim in his bed.
Suddenly Yvette saw a splash of leaves in the top of a tree below us and a big brown monkey swung out on a pendent vine.
He went back to his room humming a song of Yvette Guilbert's.
But I remembered the words of Yvette, uttered in all solemnity: "She is dangerous; you must take care."
It seems ungracious to speak of Yvette Guilbert as a great artist.
He went back to Yvette, who, not lacking in shrewdness, sensed something of the situation.
Yvette was blasée, and her millinery was in sympathy with her feelings.
They saw him emerge from the inn with Yvette, help her into the buggy with great solicitude, and drive away.
Yvette approached me suddenly, and flung her arms round my neck.
