Description from back cover:
An intimate story of the girls from out of town
Here are the bright ones, the pretty ones, the ones who come streaming out of the glamorous offices of midtown New York. They look crisp and stylish in the budget cottons.
Some of them were born near here – like Caroline Bender. Her family lives in the suburbs and could afford to support her if she didn’t insist on being independent.
Some of them came here – like April Morrison. A blushing country girl, within two months she looked typically sleek and sophisticated. But she’s still innocent – an easy mark for New York wolves.
But all of them (and you will meet five in this startling and outspoken novel) have one thing in common. Work is just a stopgap. They are searching for a man – to love, to marry.
Their story – and the story of the men with whom they are intimate – is stunningly told in The Best Of Everything.
