O is for O'Hara. A masterpiece of American fiction and a bestseller
upon its publication in 1935, BUtterfield 8 lays bare with brash
honesty the unspoken and often shocking truths that lurked beneath the
surface of a society still reeling from the effects of the Great
Depression. One 'sunday morning, Gloria wakes up in a stranger's
apartment with nothing but a torn evening dress, stockings, and
panties. When she steals a fur coat from the wardrobe to wear home,
she unleashes a series of events that can only end in tragedy.
Inspired by true events, BUtterfield 8 caused a sensation on its
publication for its frank depiction of the relationship between a wild
and beautiful young woman and a respectable, married man.
