    When she arrives at the famed Barbizon Hotel in 1952, secretarial school enrollment in hand, Darby McLaughlin is everything her modeling agency hall mates aren't: plain, self-conscious, homesick, and utterly convinced she doesn't belong - a notion the models do nothing to disabuse. Yet when Darby befriends Esme, a Barbizon maid, she's introduced to an entirely new side of New York City: seedy downtown jazz clubs where the music is as addictive as the heroin that's used there, the startling sounds of bebop, and even the possibility of romance.

It is 1928, and 25-year-old Clara is teaching at the lauded Grand Central School of Art, but not even the prestige of the school can override the public's disdain for a "woman artist." Nearly 50 years later, in 1974, the terminal has declined almost as sharply as Virginia Clay's life.
