    One thought on “Beauty”

    1. Another "old" book, published in 1933. Letty starts her beauty salon, backed financially with a married man. When it's time to make her decision, something happens that makes her decision easier but still painful. An unsophisticated story, with love and tragedy (neither described with much emotion). Emotions are not shallow or false but not really "real." I cannot remember if I have read any other stories by this author but I feel that her writing is typical of the era.

    2. The movie made based on this is much better: Beauty for Sale, 1933, starring Madge Evans, Otto Kruger, and Una Merkel.
