A «sharply stylish» (Boston Globe) book about a young woman in post-Depression era New York who finds herself thrust into high society—now with over one million readers worldwide—from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Lincoln Highway and A Gentleman in Moscow.
About the author.
Everything we see and hear is being read. It was just a few minutes ago that your eyes were drawn to a letter on a piece of paper on the elevator floor, a book, or even a postcard. Reading is a form of verbal exchange. Unless we read, we’d be unable to comprehend, and imagine what we don’t know. Reading is a lifelong skill that should be cultivated from an early age.
But sometimes we don’t have enough time to read, or we don’t have enough money to buy the original book. That’s why we write summary books so that people don’t lose any good stories. We also like to help young students who have to do homework for university, and college … C.B Publishers provide them with a perfect and low-cost guide.
The gift of a book, as well as a gift, is a delicate compliment.
Of the various instruments invented by man, the most amazing is the book; all others are extensions of his body … Only the book is an extension of the imagination and memory.
Jorge Luis Borges
He who reads a lot and walks a lot, sees a lot and knows a lot.
Miguel de Cervantes
