Summer at Tiffany by Marjorie Hart

$ 12.00

Summer at Tiffany by Marjorie Hart is a 258-page hardcover published in 2007 by William Morrow, an Imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, and is a stated first edition. The only perceivable flaws are some light rubbing to the dust jacket cover and some scuffing along the outside upper page edges.  Otherwise, the book is in as-new condition, with bright clean pages and tight, unopened binding. 

Book Summary

New York City, 1945.  Marjorie Jacobson and her best friend, Marty Garrett arrive fresh from Kappa house at the University of Iowa hoping to find summer positions as shopgirls.  Turned away from the top department stores, they miraculously find jobs as pages at Tiffany & Co., becoming the first women to ever work on the sales floor--a diamond-filled day job replete with Tiffany blue shirtwaist dresses from Bonwit Teller's--and the envy of all their friends.

Hart takes us back to the magical time when she and Marty rubbed elbows with the rich and famous; pinched pennies to eat at the Automat; experienced nightlife at La Martinique; and danced away their weekends with dashing midshipmen.  Between being dazzled by Judy Garland's honeymoon visit to Tiffany, celebrating VJ Day in Times Square, and mingling with Cafe society, she fell in love, learned unforgettable lessons, made important decisions that would change her future, and created the remarkable memories she now shares with all of us.
