[minor wear to spine ends, otherwise a tight clean book, apparently unread, vintage price sticker (from The White House, San Francisco) on rear pastedown; jacket shows a little wear along bottom edge and at top corners]. "The story of a man who was a pack mule for women," whatever the hell that means. Oh, I see: the protagonist's "idealistic sense of duty towards women swept him inexorably from one woman to another -- the prey of every woman who entered his life. Escaped from the tyranny of his mother, prohibited from marrying the girl he loved, he married Belle, an actress, whose talents declined as her vices increased." All of this builds to John's (of course his name is John) "final revolt," in which he "kicks over the traces" (like a mule, get it?).
