045 Reckless Liaisons

Reckless is being careless and irresponsible towards a person’s own actions. Liaison is communication between two people or more. The book states that Evelyn Nesbit is unaware of how people think of her. She is careless of how people may think about her visiting the Lower East side by “working” together with Tateh.

Evelyn was fond of the Little Girl that she came around and has Tateh finish her silhouettes. She was concerned for them and had Tateh create as many silhouettes to keep him occupied and she gladly paid him; she patronized his art. She visited the family of two so often that gossip columnists began to wonder where she was disappearing to. “Evelyn’s disappearances that she was engaging in reckless liaisons, and her name was linked with dozens of men around town.” Evelyn did not care as to what the media were rumoring about her; she had a new love interest on the Lower East side, she was infatuated with the Little Girl.

According to some sources, listed below, Evelyn had met and had an intimate relationship with Stanford White before marrying Harry K. Thaw; Ragtime states otherwise.  Doctorow mentions in the novel that Evelyn is White’s mistress as she is married to Thaw; the reason why Thaw kills White.

Another man in young Nesbit’s life is was actor John Barrymore, who proposed to her and she rejected him. Other sources claim that Nesbit later was with child by Barrymore. White did not approve of that and arranged for Nesbit to have an abortion by “sending her away to boarding school”.
