Have you heard the phrase “mutton dressed as lamb”? I thought it was well known, but I’ve been surprised at how many people, even vintage models like myself, don’t know it. Good news–if you didn’t, you will now.
“Dressing the Mutton” has been published in The Doctor T.J. Eckleburg Review. Read my essay here, and if you don’t get the journal’s title tribute you’ll find it briefly on their “About” page or, even better, the complete passage at the beginning of Chapter 2 of The Great Gatsby.
