An author who sells- but please note that this is a book on a less ambitious scale than many she has done, but will pass time passably well, and rent on her name. She has relinquished her multiple dwelling mechanism for what seems still fairly fabricated feminine fiction as the shooting of Marylym, by her closest friend and manager, Beth poker, provides the story of a double life. Plain, practical Beth finds a purpose, and a compensation in the face and voice of Marylynn, makes a success of her as a cafe canary, gives service, money and the man she loves, to that end. Marylynn, a housewife by inclination, messes up her marriage to Luke, divorces him, and ends by marrying a plain Joe and abandoning her career. .... V.B. fans like her anyhow.
