• Imposter

There is a relatively small group the members of which pose as habitues of the library, but who are in fact Imposters. The boy Imposter comes in many guises; he may dress like a Rolling Stone or a diplomat. He often reads in a lounge chair, sitting with his legs sprawled, lurking to trip a doll who may come trotting by. The girl Imposter will sit at a table, but always opposite the best looking male she can find. She will apply herself to her reading with industry, but will never with so much that she might miss a friendly glance. The girl Imposter always sits with her legs crossed. If after a while she hears that male voice offer "Coffee?" she knows she has completed a successful session of work.
