New York: Farrar & Rinehart, Inc.. Very Good+ in Good dj. (c.1942, 1943). First Edition. Hardcover. [bumping to spine ends, light soiling to top of text block; jacket (supplied from another copy) is moderately edgeworn, scrunched and wrinkled at spine, closed tears at a couple of spine corners (one of which extends diagonally across the bottom part of the spine, but is fairly unobtrusive]. Two short novels with show-biz settings, by the author of "My Man Godfrey," about "lovable people you like to read about." (Now there's a switch!) "The Golden Road" is about a young woman "who came to New York for a job, but got instead a bandleader husband and all the complications of marriage to a selfish, hard-drinking man." (He must not be one of the aforementioned lovable people.) Meanwhile, the protagonist of the second book, "Bright Star" is determined "to be an actress or die trying. For a while it looks as if death might win, but an accidental slip on the stage landed her in her rightful place, the comedy field." . (Inventory #: 22956)
