Book Description Putnam's Sons., New York, 1926. A very handsome copy bound in finely woven gleaming black cloth stamped brightly in gilt on the front boards and on the spine. The gilt lettering of the title at the top of the spine is a trifle dulled with a touch of flecking to the edges of the "T" and the "E" in the word "THE". With small closed 1" tears from the top center of pages 125-133 just to the edges of the first lines of type and not affecting the type itself. Charming endpapers with stylized cityscape of New York against clouds and a blue sky. With the discrete stamp of Long Beach,CA bookseller at the bottom of the front paste-down. Red top-staining. In the complete pictorial dustjacket printed on textured paper with the original price of $2.00 at the bottom of the inside front flap. The jacket features an artistic rendering of the Manhattan skyline of 1926. There is darkening to the spine and edge-rubbing as well as small chips at the corners and tiny nicks at the top and bottom of the dust jacket spine ends. Very scarce in a complete dust jacket. "Occasionally there appears a first novel which refuses to fit into any of the stock descriptive categories that the publisher usually finds serviceable. Such a novel is "The Cubical City," an intense, vital story of Manhattan which follows none of the conventional fiction lines. Miss Flanner has created for herself a stylistic idiom that is highly individual, and complete originality marks the unfolding of her narrative." (Inside front flap) Janet Flanner (March 13, 1892 – November 7, 1978) was an American writer and journalist who served as the Paris correspondent of The New Yorker magazine from 1925 until she retired in 1975. She wrote under the pen name "Genêt". She also published a single novel, The Cubical City, set in New York City.In September 1925 Flanner published her first "Letter from Paris" in The New Yorker, launched the previous February, starting a professional association that lasted for five decades. She wrote under the pen name "Genêt". Flanner had first come to the attention of editor Harold Ross through his first wife, Jane Grant, who was a friend of Flanner's from the Lucy Stone League, an organization that fought for women to preserve their maiden names after marriage, in the manner of Lucy Stone. Flanner joined the group in 1921. Ross famously thought "Genêt" was French for "Janet".Flanner was a prominent member of the American expatriate community which included Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Dos Passos, e. e. cummings, Hart Crane, Djuna Barnes, Ezra Pound, and Gertrude Stein– the world of the Lost Generation and Les Deux Magots. While in Paris she became very close friends with Gertrude Stein and her lover, Alice B. Toklas. In 1932 she fell in love with Noel Haskins Murphy, a singer from a village just outside Paris, and had a short-lived romance. This did not affect her relationship with Solano.She played a crucial role in introducing her contemporaries to new artists in Paris, including Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Henri Matisse, André Gide, Jean Cocteau, and the Ballets Russes, as well as crime passionel and vernissage, the triumphant crossing of the Atlantic Ocean by Charles Lindbergh and the depravities of the Stavisky Affair.Her prose style has since come to epitomise the "New Yorker style"– its influence can be seen decades later in the prose of Bruce Chatwin. (WiKipedia) First Edition with 1926 on the title and copyright pages as well as the colophon of the Knickerbocker Press/ New York and "Made in the United States of America" on the copyright page.
