Excerpt from Madame Izan: A Tourist Story

John Windeatt saw her for the first time in the lift of the big hotel at Hong Kong. That was an epoch in Windeatt's life, though he was not at the moment fully conscious of the fact. He did, however, feel vaguely that something rather out of the common had happened, though this was only that the most beautiful woman he had ever beheld suddenly stepped into the dim, fusty, steaming box which was conveying him and his sister to their recently-acquired rooms on the fifth story.

She entered with a little wavering movement, out of keeping with the Diana-like carriage of her head and bust. This was the suggestion she gave - that of a Greek goddess just descended from Olympus. She had the radiant, surprised expression which, under these circumstances, a goddess might be supposed to wear, and seemed to exhale, as it were, some celestial aroma of youth, and to personify the freshest joy of existence.
