The Sorrows Of Elsie. Andre SAVIGNON.

The Sorrows Of Elsie. New York. Payson and Clarke. (1927).

First American Edition. E. F. dustjacket art. Novel by winner of the Prix Goncourt about a "sex-tortured girl", set in the provincial English town of Plymouth. A novel somewhat exotic in nature, where in one night Elsie's "long virtue, so jealously preserved, was immolated without regret, in the fever of a moment, in one evening's folly". Savignon attempts to analyze the emotional lives of Jazz Age women. Wonderful dustjacket art. Near Fine in Very Good plus dustjacket.
