Description

Betty by Georges Simenon. Translated from the French by Alastair Hamilton. Betty, after the final and degrading break-up of her marriage to Guy Etamble, prostitutes herself to escape from the truth of her situation and drinks to give herself the illusion of courage. She collapses in a bar frequented by drug addicts and drunkards - creatures as pitiable as herself - and is taken to the Carlton Hotel in Versailles by Laure Lavancher, a doctor's widow, who nurses her back to health. The dust jacket has light general wear and price has been clipped. The book has some small age spots along the page edges but overall a very tidy copy.
