Natalie Babbitt - Herbert Rowbarge. And of course he had. The opulent Cleveland hotel room with its oceanic bed, the bottle of wine at supper, Ruby’s ample breasts—the authenticity of these last long a subject of speculation on Herbert’s part after all those pictures of ruffle-padded corsets in catalogues—all these served to cool his apprehension and heat his purpose.
