The Cubical City. A Novel.

Carbondale: Southern Illinois University Press, 1974. First Reprint Edition. Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket. Slight rubbing to jacket extremities. This is a reprint of Flanner's only published novel which originally appeared in 1926. In "The Cubical City," she provides an extraordinary—and memorable—glimpse of the young artist in New York during the Jazz Age. In an Afterword written for this new edition she discusses the writer’s craft and her early schooling in and dedication to it. The story concerns the young, talented, and liberated Delia Poole who, after emerging from the Middle West and after a period of struggle, is enjoying success as a costume designer for New York musical reviews. In love with New York, established in her own studio, and en­joying life, she finds her life complicated by Paul, the impecunious suitor, and by the death of her father and her mother’s removal to New York.
