Genevieve Holden

  • She was ... one of those anxious, obliging souls whose mouths seem to have been made for the sole purpose of having someone else put words into them.

  • ... the crowning absurdity was Sara Ellen's tireless efforts on behalf of the committee for promoting the Democratic nominee for president. Which, in the Deep South, Mrs. Roberts had pointed out out dryly, is like assisting the sun to rise.

Genevieve Holden, U.S. writer

(1919 - 2007)

Real name: Genevieve Long Pou.
