This is a story of a spoiled and willful young matron/socialite with a climber for a husband. Lizzie is shallow, self-absorbed and self-centered. How she grows and begins to develop into a different person is the thread that runs through this story of Chinese gangs, prostitutes, and others of shady means who inhabit the underbelly of San Francisco during Prohibition.
I adored this book, and now own an old hardcover copy. Read it along with Shirley Streshinsky's "A Time Between," also an incredible novel of San Francisco in the 1920s.
