These six brilliantly written episodes, brought together in Mary McCarthy's first novel, create a fascinating portrait of a 1930s New York social circle. Based loosely on the author's own life, the book follows a young bohemian woman, Margaret Sargent, through her experiences and lost loves in a time of coming war. Its bold insight, sly wit, and virtuoso style won Mary McCarthy immediate recognition as one of the most accomplished, versatile, and penetrating writers in America.
