overture to alabaster skin


"Having no room of her own, she established herself near the little-used front door, and here "she wrote upon small sheets of paper which could easily be put away, or covered with a piece of blotting paper". A creaking swing door gave her warning when anyone was coming, and she refused to have the creak remedied."Writers’ rooms: Jane Austen, by Claire Tomalin
