The story of Fay Etrange. (Some later editions change Fay to Robert.) Born in Kuntsville, Pennysylvania, Fay decamps to New York as soon as shes able, and supports herself by working as a nude model. She attends medical school with Mason Linberg, her close friend and cruising companion, and when Linberg astounds the entire cast by announcing his forthcoming marriage to one Marjorie Bull-Dike, Fay throws a lavish party for the odd couple, who then decamp to Paris.

Left alone, Fay embarks on a series of lubricious encounters with, among many, many others, an Irish cop, some soldiers on leave, and an entire polo team (not the horses). At the last she finds true love with a handsome lieutenant on the battlefields of France.Obvious to all but the dimmest reader is the fact that Fay Etrange is a man, a man with a knowingly homonymous name.

The device of referring to the character as her throughout the book fooled no-one but the authorities who, staggeringly, failed to prosecute on obscenity charges. Fay, then, is the eponymous hero of A Scarlet Pansy, and the book itself is a scurrilous roman à clef. Mason Linberg is based on McAlmon- the medically-trained, poetry-loving Fay is based on McAlmons close friend, the medically-trained, poetry-loving William Carlos Williams- and Masons bride Marjorie Bull-Dike is McAlmons bride-of-convenience, Bryher.
