Rules of Civility
If you’re a fan of movies from the 30’s and 40’s starring a wise-cracking and beautiful heroine who mingles with high-society New York, put this book on reserve now. Meet Katey Kontent and her best pal, the tragic Eve. Out celebrating the end of 1937 in a Village jazz joint, Katey and Eve meet wealthy Tinker Grey, and the three become fast friends. Tinker allows them into his world of the rich and very rich, and Katey impresses his associates enough to start her own ascent from legal secretary pool to glamorous publishing world. The writing has an elegance and style that perfectly mimics the New York City setting.
