Review : Thomas Anstey Guthrie (1856-1934), was an English novelist and journalist, who wrote his comic novels under the pseudonym F. Anstey.
The Tinted Venus (1885) was adapted by S. J. Perelman, Ogden Nash, and Kurt Weill into One Touch of Venus in 1943
An engagement ring can’t bring a statue to life — can it? The goddess Aphrodite reanimates an ancient statue and fastens herself on to a foolish hair-dresser in London–the grandeurs of classical paganism and the banalities of our common modern life in ludicrous opposition.
