First Edition. "Powerful novel of life today amongst the so-called 'white-collar' class, the clerk, and the salaried man and woman, generally... What would you yourself do, if you were a clerk in an office, with hopes and desires which your salary would not pay for? What would your feelings be if you met a girl with more money than you had, who thought you ought to take her out to parties and dances... An intriguing sort of tale [with] universal appeal to all of us who belong to what might be called the great middle class". Perhaps one of the earliest novels to address middle income earners as "Middle Class". Near Fine in Very Good plus dustjacket.
