Mavis

Tarrant said, ‘How is Willie forgetting his sorrows?’
‘With Mavis. He’s flown to Jersey for a long weekend with her.’
‘Mavis?’
‘I haven’t met her, but according to Willie she’s a very tall showgirl with more and bigger curves than you’d think possible on any human being. Mentally as thick as two planks, but unfailingly cheerful and bursting with enthusiasm. He says it’s like going to bed with four girls and a cylinder of laughing-gas. I think she’s just the sort to take him out of himself.’
