Skyscraper
By

Rating
Lynn is an ambitious young woman who loves her job in the gleaming new Manhattan skyscraper. Soon, Lynn also loves Tom, the young clerk down the hall. They are so in love that if they don't get married, something improper is bound to happen. But her company has a strict new policy: Any woman who marries will be immediately fired. First published in 1931 -- the same year the Empire State Building opened its doors. This book marks the advent of a new kind of romance plot, and Lynn a new kind of heroine. Lynn is facing choices that will determine the course of the rest of her life, but rather than just choose between suitors, Lynn and other working girls like her must decide whether to abandon their careers -- or abandon their men. They can't have both -- or can they?

Reviews

"A captivating and quietly subversive novel, featuring a spunky young working woman struggling to make it on her own. Skyscraper declares that despite all challenges, women should insist on their right to have it all." --Ms. magazine "With its sexual bargains and betrayals, insider trades and financial maneuvers, Skyscraper is pulp fiction at its best." --Maria Dibattista, author of Fast-Talking Dames "It's wonderful to see this lively and richly detailed romance back in print." --Kay Mussell, author of North American Romance Writers
