5.0 out of 5 stars More than the Movie, January 2, 2004
This review is from: Kitty Foyle (Hardcover)
As much as I enjoy watching old Ginger Rogers movies, it always saddens me that the film version of "Kitty Foyle" has so overshadowed Morley's novel.
Written in the stream-of-consciousness style, "Kitty Foyle" is both a coming-of-age novel and a novelistic "study" of the white collar career girl of the 1930s. Kitty is from Philadelphia, but spends her high school years in a small town in Illinois, and ultimately ends up working [in the cosmetic industry] in New York City. Morley is excellent at presenting these various mileu unjudgmentally [he leaves that for the reader] but vividly and accurately. He is also excellent at creating "real" characters, who face moral dilemmas and who are changed because of their decisions. It is an entertaining and delightful read, as well as being a thoughtful read.
