[good sound copy with only light shelfwear, moderate soiling to edges of text block; jacket a bit edgeworn, but a bit of paper loss at spine ends]. "Night after night, the Moths of our civilization -- silly daughters -- foolish wives -- dizzily dance attendance upon the dazzle, the brilliance, the lure, the danger of the bright light -- night after night -- and then ------------?" [I dunno -- I guess they run out of hyphens?] "Here is a story of Broadway -- of theatredom -- where opportunity awaits beauty and talent and temptation runs amuck." [Oh, THAT story, OK. Honestly, I haven't quite recovered yet from "dizzily dance attendance upon the dazzle." Do I wish I'd written that? Not exactly -- but I'm glad SOMEBODY did!]
