Covers lightly edgeworn and faintly creased, no spine creases. Pages pale brown with edges a bit darker as is common with Virago editions. A nice copy.; This delightful satire "was hailed as 'easily the wittiest novel of the season' upon its appearance in 1931." It was WH's fourth novel and her fortune as a novelist changed with its publication. "Caroline Denton-Smyth is an eccentric, remarkable for her vivid costumes trailing feathers, fancy beads and jingling lorgnettes." She creates the Christian Cenima Company, her vehicle for reform. Through Caroline's motley Board of Directors and their secret desires and motivations, the author affectionately observes the foilbles of human nature.; Cover matches sample image.
