Mr. Warren (to Eunice he was always Mr. Warren) was the District Attorney. He was hard bitten, hard drinking, hard to please. He expected Eunice to keep his desk clear, his appointments straight, his wife mollified, his office staff efficient and unobtrusive. She had no private life: all her energy went into the daily frenzy of jangling telephones, office management and overtime-always overtime. Then Dave Gregory, the young reporter she loved a little, and lost because she was too busy to love anybody much, came back into her life. And love suddenty became a desperate necessity. This then is the story of a girl and two men and an office, as real as the beat of typewriters." Illustrator: . Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fiction; Inventory No: 141614.
