    MOBI John O'Hara ´ MOBI Butterfield 8 ePUB ´ ´ early learning.co butterfield free, Butterfield 8 PDFIt's not often that I read two works of fiction from the same author back to back but I was digging John O'Hara so much after Appointment in Samarra that I thought I would read this one I would never have guessed that both books issued from the same person Not that the uality of writing has changed both books are from the mind of a master Well maybe not this one so muchthis roman a clef had its beginnings in real life but it is uite intriguing and in spite of an extremely small body count and practically no actio

    MOBI John O'Hara ´ MOBI Butterfield 8 ePUB ´ ´ early learning.co butterfield free, Butterfield 8 PDFGloriaOne name Gloria Wandrous One of the greatest female characters I have ever had the pleasure to read about in any novel She’s twenty two tall and beautiful living in New York City in the late 1920s I hesitate to compare her with Audrey Hepburn in the film version of “Breakfast at Tiffany” but Ms Hepburn immediately comes to mind The big difference is that Gloria is so much than Ms Hepburn’s character Gloria is everything and independent sexually active and she understands men and women and their needs and desires in a fascinating way Mr O’Hara stretched this character to the limit and beyond during the complicated era of the depression This is an excellent book and Mr O’Hara’s depiction of the depression era in NYC is as good as I have never read

    MOBI John O'Hara ´ MOBI Butterfield 8 ePUB ´ ´ early learning.co butterfield free, Butterfield 8 PDFI read BUtterfield 8 years ago and revisiting it now I realize I hadn't gotten much from it at the time O'Hara was something of a legend but now he seems incredibly dated The story is set during the Great Depression and asks the uestion What if a woman could behave like a man? That's not to mean that she took on masculine traits but that she played by the same rules What if as a young person she drank and used drugs liberally and recreationally and she had a lot of intimate partners many of them temporary? And she was especially fond of attractive upperclass men Married men who were as shameless in their cheating and scheming as she was in dumping them one after another And she wasn't a pro Just a pretty well dressed girl from the suburbs who craved a fast life in Manhattan Story aside this is a serious think piece on the role of women in urban society written far ahead of the feminist revolution But in many ways and especia
