9780099518334: BUtterfield 8 (Vintage Classics)

'On this Sunday morning in May, this girl who was later to be the cause of a sensation in New York awoke much too early for her night before'... This particular morning Gloria finds herself alone in a stranger's apartment with nothing but a torn evening dress and her stockings and panties. When she takes a fur coat from the wardrobe to wear home, she sets in train a series of events that will lead to tragedy.

A bestseller on its first publication, BUtterfield 8 is the glittering story of a 1930s glamour girl whose ill-starred entanglement with a respectable married man is set against a backdrop of Manhattan bars and bedrooms.

Review:

"A man who knows exactly what he is writing about and has written it marvelously well" (Ernest Hemingway)

"O'Hara understood better than any other American writer how class can both reveal and shape character" (Fran Lebowitz)

"O'Hara occupies a unique position...He is the only American writer to whom America presents itself as a social scene in the way it once presented itself to Henry James, or France to Proust" (Lionel Trilling New York Times)

"Better than anyone else, he told the truth about his time, the first half of the twentieth century. He was a professional. He wrote honestly and well" (John O’Hara on John O’Hara. He had this inscribed on his gravestone)

"More than any other American novelist, O'Hara has both reflected his times and captured the unique individual for generations to come" (Los Angeles Times)

Book Description:

'The real F. Scott Fitzgerald' Fran Lebowitz
