KIRKUS REVIEW

All About two Eves (Miss Orr wrote the story which became that successful film-musical). One, Winifred Wister, has three million dollars which enables her to indulge her taste as a producer, or as entrepreneur of a new publication, F Magazine (""F"" for feminine--note the last two letters) and to acquire the men and women of her fickle choice. The other Eve is a true innocent called Maggie who not only refuses to bite that apple but even panics when Jeff, who truly loves her, tries to achieve any sort of intimacy. Winnie thinks Maggie's a closet lesbian--but you'll learn the real reason for her sexual phobosqueamishness at the end which is almost simultaneous with hers. . . . This is shiny-paper fiction somewhere between Redbook and Oui and it's adorned from Portugal to Paris to New York with Union Carbide sequins the size of rocks.
