From the front flap: "A powerful and exciting narrative about a man, a talent, and the way we live now. The main character is a young novelist from the Kentucky hills, a man of great gifts who rockets to success and piles up and loses fortunes in a wild and dazzling career. This large-scale narrative, stretching over seven years and involving many counterplots and scores of characters, swirls through Kentucky, Hollywood, New York, Europe, and Washington. It provides a sweeping panorama of the United States today and it builds at last to a thundering climax as two women struggle for the love and the life of Youngblood Hawke. One of them is a brilliant girl from California whom he meets at the outset of his career and who becomes his editor and confidante, while the other is a rich and alluring married woman of Manhattan, much older than Hawke, who snares him into a sensational adultery."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
