A first edition, first printing published by The Grey Walls Press in 1953. A fine book with one neat name and date to the front endpaper. In a very good+ (or better) dust wrapper which is unclipped. Lightly chipped to the head of the spine. Zelda Fitzgerald’s novel relates the stormy passage of the young girl from a safe and secure childhood to maturity in a mad world. Much of the journey is in Europe amongst the people who decorated the Ritz Bar in Paris during the great post-war boom of the 1930s. The girl becomes desperate and in her desire to escape turns to dancing for the ballet, but in the end her husband and herself return to the Southern town in which she was born. The novel is believed to be largely autobiographical.
