[nice book, bottom corners slightly bumped and some light spottng on the top edge, no other significant wear; jacket is moderately rubbed and edgeworn, with one short closed tear and associated pair of diagonal creases at bottom of front panel; note that the jacket is, curiously, unpriced]. Very scarce novel, the story of a woman who had married her way up in the world, exchanging the shabby Washington Square studio of her childhood for the luxury of a mansion just off Fifth Avenue. However, her stable but unexciting marriage to a distinguished lawyer is threatened when she becomes the mistress of "an adventurer who sponges on women." Brought to the screen by M-G-M in 1934 with William Powell and Myrna Loy, the third movie in which they were teamed that year.
