manzanas-amargas  asked:

Re: the mysterious "Y" mentioned in The Beatrice Letters, I wonder if this might be a reference to the famous soprano, Yma Sumac? She's alluded to in The Penultimate Peril (as the namesake for the knot Violet invents). Maybe Violet inherited some of her musical taste from her mother, and Lemony made mention of someone Beatrice admired in the abstract as opposed to someone with whom she had a real relationship. (Just a bit of wild speculation, since there aren't many names starting with Y!)

It’s as good a suggestion as any, considering the lack of intel we have on the elusive Y. Thanks, @manzanas-amargas!
