I thought I'd start Paris in July with a short, fun book. Margery Sharp's Martha in Paris fit the bill perfectly -- only 166 pages and it was one more I could cross off my owned-and-unread pile. However, when I bought this at Strand Books several years ago I didn't realize it was second in a series. Naturally I would need to read them in order, so I had to track down the first book and buy that one too, though it's set in London, not Paris.
|I love this pulp novel cover - so dramatic!|
|This cover is just SO WRONG it's laughable. |
Martha wouldn't be caught dead in stockings and black pumps.
It's so bad I had to include it.
|I love this retro cover.|
