About: Tale of men and women livening up their dreary suburban existences through a peculiar neighborhood association in this work noted mostly for a dozen plates from a rather famous illustrator.
Marge Caspar gave her husband an anxious look across the dinner table
as he sat talking to his sexy young niece, Ellie Courtnay. She wasn't
quite so sure that it had been a good idea of Jack's to invite his
older sister's only daughter to spend two weeks here in Glendview. Now
that she and Jack had just about got things straightened out between
them, along came this “hippie” girl. Well, maybe she wasn't exactly a
“hippie,” but in Marge Caspar's private opinion, Ellie Courtnay was a
walking invitation to rape. And Jack, as she could well testify from
experience, was just as red-blooded and male as they came, and how he
was going to overlook making a pass at a dish like that, even if she
was his niece, was worrying her more than she wanted to admit.
Not that she dared say anything to Jack about it. When he proposed
that they play host to Ella, he'd put it in a flat statement of fact.
And after having gone through that humiliating but really delicious
ordeal over his lap that time when she had learned who was really boss
in the Caspar house, Marge had no desire to start a new marital rift by
arguing. After all, Ellie was the daughter of Jack's sister, and he
hadn't seen the girl in at least ten years. Just the same, it would
have been so much better if Ella's mother had been able to come along
and chaperone her. What was a girl like this going to do with
middle-aged folks— because that's what they were—for two weeks in the
summer out here in the suburb?
Of course, Marge had no way of knowing that her husband had seen in
May Courtnay's unexpected phone call a practically heaven-sent
opportunity to get the Spanking Society Ltd. under way. Because, unless
he missed his guess, Jack Caspar was sure that swinging Ellie was going
to prove to be the catalytic agent for what would break down all the
bedroom frustrations which his friends Pete, Dave, and Matt were
battling these days.
