Against the backdrop of the New York art scene of the 1950s and 1960s, sculptor Ivan St. Peters pursues both Boston beauty Emma Blackstone and his muse, Maisie

From Publishers Weekly:

This banal and thoroughly predictable tale of passion and woe in the 1950s should delight readers of Judith Krantz et al. Maisie Green recalls through first-person narrative her "poor but honest" beginnings in New York as she struggles to cope with the sudden marriage of her lover, up-and-coming sculptor Ivan St. Peters, to heiress Emma Blackstone. Emma's distraught ex-fiance, Julian Slade, is also Ivan's dealer, and he vengefully scuttles Ivan's career. Maisie, meanwhile, dries her tears on the shoulder of a wealthy author, marries him and, in an odd turn of events, tries to help the now-impoverished Ivan. Personal destruction, death and despair course through this novel of love and hate, but unhappily, Hampton ( Seductions ) merely glosses over the modern art movement, a missed opportunity that only adds to the shortcomings of a love story with promising potential related in minimal fashion.

From Library Journal:

Given its suggestive title, this novel of bohemian New York in the 1950s and 1960s could be dismissed as just another bedroom farce, which would be a mistake. For Maisie Green, fresh from suburbia, and her peers, whether poets, sculptors, or painters, desire can be physical, certainly, but it is also the pursuit of artistic fulfillment and beauty. This is a spirited and entertaining story, and Hampton ( Seductions) strikes just the right balance in the use of famous locales and real personalities. Still, one could wish for more of the intriguing character of Dance Duprey and less of the younger generation. Lydia Burruel Johnson, Mesa P.L., Ariz.
