Cloe Marr Book... 1946 1st ed A. A. Milne...This is how the Author describes his book: A portrait of a gay, young woman in a year be- tween the wars,- done from the outside, so that the reader must fonn his own judgment of her : as do her friends in this book, and all of us of each other in real life. Of her friends the reader will leam something from the inside, which may enable him to know them better, and so to see Chloe more clearly through their eyes. If, in the end, she still remains something Qf a mystery , he should not be surprised: for every human being is a mystery, and nobody knows the truth about anybody else. This, however, does not prevent us from enjoying the company of a beautiful woman or the conversation of an amusing friend, wherever such is to be found. But the Publisher can't resist adding: This is the story of Chloe Man, beautiful, desir- able and elusive- and of the men who are in love with her. The scene is London, and MI. Milne's characters move with elegance and grace through Mayfair and the publishing and theatrical worlds. Here you will find the quiet charm, the civilized wit, and the indefinable lightness which are the distinguishing marks of a consummate master of English comedy. Here, in short, is a book which will delight A. A. Milne's admirers and will captivate those who are discovering him for the fIrst time. NO WRITING, NO RIPS, NO TEARS, BINDING is intact with no loose pages, shows minimal SHELF WEAR, DUSTJACKET is colour aging with a few small edge tears.
