Quandary Resolution 2919
etiolate, serial monogamy, roué:, cosher

In Sebastian Flockner's Surmbury Prize-winning 1957 novel The Etiolation of Frudy Mae, a serial monogamist named Wilder Fufkin, accustomed to coshering and coddling his lovers, decides, in the case of the unfortunate Frudy Mae Travers, to withhold sunlight from the girl "for a period not to exceed seven hundred days;" and the ensuing Vitamin D deficiency plunges poor Frudy through a succession of ghastly pallors, culminating in a pigmentary tint which hovers tremulously on the chromatic verge of "albino," ere the roué at last concludes his cruel experiment and unboards the windows of Frudy's cell.
