Book Description E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., Publishers, New York, 1950, 1950. PACKARD, Reynolds. The Kansas City Milkman. New York : E. P. Dutton & Co.,Inc., Publishers, 1950. First Edition. Pp (8),9-319,(1). 8vo, red cloth, gilt to spine. "Reynolds Packard's exciting, dramatic novel is at the same time a spirited satirical account of the feverish "empire" of a great news agency. Here in Paris are all the personal loves, hates and ambitions of a group of highly temperamental people, all working, and playing, at a constantly high pressure, their ties reaching into most of the glamorous capitals of Europe aźd Africa. Seasoned correspondent at the Paris bureau of Interworld Press is Clay Brewster, whose beautiful Spanish wife will not live withhim. Worry about their marriage is speeding the disintegration of Brewster's career with the world's "most accurate, impartial and rapid" news gathering network. He has become second choice even for the delicate assignment ofguiding potential clients through the Parisian night life. When Don Shelbyjoins the Paris staff, Brewster sees in him none more inexperienced youngman throwing himself blindly into the "concrete mixer" of news, sex, Agencypolitics, and that state of continual crisis that is normal for Interworld. Brewster determines to try to steer Don right, but Don develops faster inthe hands of other, softer teachers. Don is destined for big things at Interworld and is given the full treatment. The inescapable happens when Don and Cristina Brewster meet. That Clay himself has fostered this meeting fromthe first in no way prepares himfor what is to happen. with such terrificemotional impact. The Kansas City Milkman is an intimate, slashing novel ofthose who cover the international news as it breaks in Paris, Rome, Algiers, Casablanca, and other cosmopolitan hot spots." (from the dj). Some edgewear, dusty, else very good in worn and torn, price-clipped dustjacket. 50.00. Seller Inventory # 109189
