Megan Wilson: Appointment in Samarra

From the writer of Butterfield 8, comes this classic novel published in 1934. It concerns a circle of wealthy party animals and one man's "rapid descent toward self-destruction". I think the type here is absolutely incredible and harkens back to those glamorous social clubs you see in black and white movies.

I would pick this up in heart beat. It also hearkens to the stuff that Carin Goldberg was doing back in the day. I love it. Nice melding of image and type in a post-modern reference.
