MAYBE NEXT YEAR by Cicely Schiller

The tired truth of why sex doesn't pay for the story of Rose Weber, who loses her first fiance in the war, her second when-after a few drinks too many- he wakes up with another wife. Rose, soured on and smartened by men, plays them for what she can get, from bootlegger Tony to lawyer Maurie; she achieves the good things in life but finds none of them worthwhile when at fifty she's through as a pinup girl- and a pickup as well.... Lots of opportunity for bedroom detail, and it's not neglected, in what is otherwise confessional material. No- for Public Libraries.
