Rules of Civility

Set in 1938 Manhattan, it’s told through the eyes of Katey Kontent, who grew up in Brooklyn and starts a career in a Manhattan law firm as a secretary. It’s the story of being young in New York. Of being let down. It begins when she and her roommate Eve meet Tinker Grey, a beautiful and exciting young man with and adventurous spirit. Suddenly she finds herself immersed in this very glamorous world of New York high society. But all that glitters is not gold. There are twists and turns and she finds herself let down (and shocked) time and time again. She also finds herself, learns to rely on herself (my favorite part), and begins to build a career.
