Within a Budding Grove: Brunhilde Esterhazy: 03/18/10
I'm now up to page 510 in Within a Budding Grove. Still no major leads on the job front. I'm hoping things pick up but it's discouraging.
This thirty page section goes back to the desires of men and women and how they pursue their intended mates. It's just just men going after women. Near the end there's a woman who appears to be stalking the protagonist.
She is described as having dark hair and dark eyes that might be black or maybe dark green. She has a bicycle. I couldn't help but think of Brunhilde Esterhazy, the cab driver from On the Town who helps the sailors track down "Miss Turnstiles" aka Ivy Smith. Along the way she falls for Chip and tries to get him to stop by her place instead of taking that tour of the town she first offered him.
I'm not sure how interested in the protagonist the girl with the bicycle is. That might play out in the next thirty pages.
See you back next week for my thoughts on pages 511-540.
