Rules of Civility
This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
In a jazz bar on the last night of 1937, watching a quartet because she couldn't afford to see the whole ensemble, there were certain things Katey Kontent knew:
- The location of every old church in Manhattan
- How to sneak into the cinema
- How to type eighty words a minute, five thousand an hour, and nine million a year
- and that if you can still lose yourself in the first chapter of a Dickens novel then everything is probably going to be fine.
By the end of the year she'd learned:
- How to launch a paper airplane high over Park Avenue
- How to live like a redhead
- How to insist upon the very best
- That the word 'yes' can be a poison
- and the Rules of Civility.
That's how quickly New York City comes about - like a weathervane - or the head of a cobra. Time tells which.
