Rodney Spelvin, cousin of the actor George, a tall, dark-haired, slim, sickeningly handsome poet who fails to qualify for the hand of Jane Packard in Rodney Fails to Qualify, the first of three golfing stories told about him by the Oldest Member. In Jane Gets off the Fairway he is famous as the author of The Purple Fan, a romantic novel in the neo-decadent style. In The Purification of Rodney Spelvin he is purified by the golfing instruction of Bill Bates' sister Anastatia. Married to Anastatia in Rodney Has a Relapse with a son named Timothy; writes mystery thrillers but suffers a relapse into poetry.
