Jaffe, Rona - The Best of Everything. The Book Club, not dated '60s? This is the story of the young women of New York - the bright, pretty girls who come streaming out of the office buildings at 5 o'clock, looking crisp and stylish in their budget dresses. Some of them are born in New York; some of them come here. They gravitate to New York, or to any other large city in the world, to play at careers while they wait for what they really want: a husband and a home. [not very PC is it? ;-)))] But they don't all become wives at twenty. And this is the story of the subtle change that takes place within those who don't, as their innocence and warmth are gradually affected by the atmosphere of the glamour world, where - thrown together, through their jobs, with mature, experienced men - they find it increasingly difficult to respond seriously to the eligible young boys with whom they might have fallen in love. Their story, and the story of the men they meet, fall in love with, lose, or win, is superbly set down by the author, who, herself a New York girl in her middle twenties, speaks with the unabashed, fact-facing honesty of her generation. (Wrapper flap). 7½" x 5", 372pp, green cloth, hardback. Very good minus complete with good (general wear and tear) wrapper.
