Quote: "Look at those eyes!" breathed Dean. They were like the eyes of the Virgin Mother when she was a child. We saw in them the tender and forgiving gaze of Jesus. And they stared unflinchingly into ours. We rubbed our nervous blue eyes and looked again. Still they penetrated us with sorrowful and hypnotic gleam.
---Jack Kerouac, "On the Road"
A favourite photograph: Eugene Atget, "La Villette, Prostitute Paris, 1921."
Keith adds that the title "Women in Glove" is is in reference to and a play on the title of the D.H. Lawrence novel, "Women in Love".
