First Edition. Clark Fay dustjacket art and illustrations. The story of the married life of Naomi Tway, a southerner brought up in the neighborhood of Greenwich Village close to Washington Square, New York. The horror of discovering the appalling secret source of her mother's income drives her into the world to make her way. Poverty, an unsuitable marriage, her experiences are strange, her temptations unusual. Miss Jordan was born in Dublin of Irish parents but her father accepted a position in an American college when the little girl was only three so she retains no memories of her birthplace. Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket, some shallow edge chips and wear.
