Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Very slightly ruffled edges of DJ.

Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “The first book about Maeve Brennan, the recently rediscovered New Yorker writer from Ireland who wrote like an angel and looked like a fashion model but, tragically, had to abandon her writing after a breakdown in the 1970s and died unknown in 1993. Maeve wrote fashion copy at Harper’s Bazaar until 1949, when William Shawn invited her to join The New Yorker. Tiny, impeccably groomed, and devastatingly witty, in William Maxwell’s words, ‘to be around her was to see style being invented’.”
