The Common Law

by Robert W. Chambers

Valerie West, a young woman quite alone in the world and facing the necessity of self-support, having tried the stage with indifferent success, decides to be an artist's model. Her first experience, when she applies for work at the studio of Louis Neville; her agony of self-consciousness when for the first time she realises what is expected of a model; her final acceptance of it, and her amazing natural aptitude for taking and retaining an effective pose--all this is handled with a tact, an understanding and a pervading touch of actuality that make these opening pages conspicuous among Mr. Chambers's riper efforts.
