New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Company. Very Good+ in Very Good- dj. (c.1935). First Edition. Hardcover. [good sound copy, minor shelfwear, some fading to cloth at spine ends, one-time owner's name/address stamped on top edge, fore-edge and ffep; jacket edgeworn, with various small nicks and tears, a bit of paper loss at both ends of spine, some surface-scraping to front panel, shallow chip at bottom of rear panel]. Novel about a young woman from Weehawken, New Jersey, who finds her only pleasure in music. Escaping from home (and a domineering mother), she attends Columbia University, and subsequently tries to "find herself" while making a precarious living in New York. The New York Times reviewer called the novel "an unusual book and one that must be taken seriously," but at the same time regretted that the author had expended her obvious gifts as a writer on a protagonist who is "humorless, self-absorbed and a good deal of a prig." The author wrote just one other novel, "Episode on West 8th Street" (1941) before fading into obscurity. . (Inventory #: 21989)
