Diana of the Upper Air

Diana, atop Madison Square Garden

"For a short while the highest point of the New York skyline was marked by a girl standing on tiptoe. At night she was also the brightest point, the focus of 66 incandescent lamps and ten spotlights, at a time when there was little electric light in the city. During the day, the sun detonated her gilded surface and she ‘flashed against a green-blue sky’, as Willa Cather described it in My Mortal Enemy." — Diana of the Upper Air, Lavinia Greenlaw 

Reader, read it! So very, very good. Like a gust of cool breeze, the sort that would have sent Diana spinning.
