Jacket design by Lynton Lamb. "These are six substantial stories, each of which makes a full exploration of its characters and their world. Although the same distinctive and original quality pervadesthem all, they tackle a variety of themes. "Mrs. Mandford's Drawing- room" , the story of an Englishwoman with a Continental daughter-in-law, recalls the now nearly forgotten ideals of England in wartime. The hero of "The Financial World" is Harry Shuttlefold, a millionaire from the Industrial Northwho suffered only one reverse. "The Crown Princess" intimately examines th e young princess's relationship to the public and to her own bizarre familyon the most crucial day of her life. "Fordie" is about a group of people w ho ask themselves, What is the point of literature? Miss Brophy's first book shows wit and a command of narrative technique, but its virtue lies in the imaginative and candid depiction of human beings involved in relationships both subtle and moving." fromt dj flap. The other story is "His Wife Survived Him". Very good, with short tear to corner of rubbed, slightly soiled,lightly chipped dustjacket. 50.00
