Excerpt from Love-Birds in the Coco-Nuts

Ilolina, want to write a novel, an irresistible, fascinating novel, a novel for readers old and young. I should like to win the approbation of your archdeacons, of your actor-managers. I want my photograph to be exhibited in your shop windows, and a place for me reserved in your Westminster Abbey. I want, in short, to write a novel that will make me famous among you. But several are the obstacles.

For one, not the plot. I have a story to tell, a true story, a story that may bring tears to many an eye. It may also call forth blushes - the story, not the telling of it. If it does I shall be sorry. Can I - little acquainted with the manners and thoughts of English ladies - hope to avoid blundering into the region of the better left unsaid? The boundaries of that region are invisible to the untrained eye of an Eastern woman. I can only tell the truth and hope for the best. But if I tell the truth I shame the devil, so your proverb says. So difficult is the path of the novelist, it seems to me.
