Tantalus


(no dust jacket) [reading copy only, with considerable shelfwear to bottom edges (boards exposed in several spots), rear hinge split, vintage bookseller's label (Bert Barber's Book Store, Fort Worth) on rear pastedown]. Novel about a Dutch family, in Paris and later New York, by a writer once referred to (at least by Time Magazine) as "Holland's foremost novelist." Apparently her depiction of American life in the middle section of the book was grounded in a personal visit to this country in 1925.
