Synopsis:

Gerald Dudley is an executive at a hardware company in St. Louis, living the quintessential bachelor life in a boarding house with his young son Quint. He is also a man who aspires beyond his means and class. When Gerald meets the wealthy divorcee, Ann Lauterbach, and the two marry, life changes irrevocably for Quint. He enters a social world of private schools and debutante balls known to him only through his father's longings. As Quint's attachment to his stepmother and her "means" grows, her marriage to his father begins to crumble in small, subtle ways, which ultimately lead to larger more devastating consequences.


Review:

"An astonishing combination of clarity and subtlety....This brief novel moves with the quality of the best modern fiction."

Chicago Tribune Books

Review:

"No description of mere mortals or events of 'A Woman of Means' can indicate the particular kind of excitement it possesses... the excitement of being constantly on the verge of deep perceptions and deep interpretations."

Robert Penn Warren, New York Times
