Thank you for the link to What Happened Next. It is possible to read things (apart from slightly awkward plot development) into the relationship between Nancy and Daisy, and it is just as possible to read quite a lot into Nancy's and John's undescribed day out together in GN, which contributes even less to the plot. Should one just conclude that AR was giving her every opportunity to explore her sexuality within the confines of what was expected of children's literature at the time?

Leaving the question of meta-fiction aside for the moment, I have often wondered what became of Missee Lee. My speculation is that she and her father before her had salted away a lot of their wealth outside China, and that with the advance of Communism she retreated to the West and eventually paired off with Jim Turner.
