The Girl of the Golden West continues, as the Girl walks in.
As you may have noted in previous parts, there is some use of offensive terms in this book. A lot of this is done to set an authentic stage; people did call each other nasty names and Belasco represented this faithfully. Some of it is probably David Belasco falling for stereotypes himself, oblivious to any offense. I think he always meant well (heck, he adapted Madame Butterfly to the stage, and that’s a powerful indictment of racism), but I also think I should let you know what’s coming. (Especially since it’s not real work-safe.)
