Novel about a woman who puts "all her emotions and energies into making a place for herself in the business world" – specifically by taking over a derelict women's magazine and building it into a successful enterprise, while also making herself a celebrated and powerful force in the New York fashion world. The author endured a marriage to the noted dipso/nutso writer William Seabrook ("Asylum") from 1935-1941, and eventually wrote a book about him, "The Strange World of Willie Seabrook."
