"Tell ’em all Daisy’s change’ her mine."

Kerry on books in the bath and baths in books here. The only bath scene I remember is Daisy in The Great Gatsby with Gatsby’s letter. Funny — just looked it up and it’s barely a scene, more a moment:

She began to cry—she cried and cried. I rushed out and found her mother’s maid and we locked the door and got her into a cold bath. She wouldn’t let go of the letter. She took it into the tub with her and squeezed it up into a wet ball and only let me leave it in the soap dish when she saw that it was coming to pieces like snow.
