This cover reminds me of some kind of old Rat Pack movie. I swear that could be Dean mixing up the drinks. What really caught my eye was also the name Faber Birren. I had never heard of a name like that and then I saw the brief author note on the verso. See first picture below. Evidently Birren was a color expert. (I had no idea that was even a job.) A little bit of digging brought me to Yale University and the Faber Birren collection. Now I am intrigued!
This story is about a couple of ladies who seem to be the 50’s definition of Desperate Housewives. I particularly like the last sentence on the back cover on how this segment of society “needs probing”. I can’t wait to read all the gory details.
