My Sister Eileen, Ruth McKenney. Pocket Books, 1945. 

Vintage paperback. Some very minimal age toning. Near fine condition. 

"McKenney, possibly by design, always took a back seat to the titular hero of her best-known book, “My Sister Eileen,” Audrey Meadows to Eileen’s Doris Day. The 1938 best-selling collection of short pieces, originally published in The New Yorker, spawned two sequels (“The McKenneys Carry On” and “All About Eileen”), a Broadway play, a radio play, a film, a Broadway musical (“Wonderful Town”), a television show and two Hollywood musicals, “Wonderful Town” and a knockoff that appeared under McKenney’s original title." (Laura Lippman for the The New York Times, 2018).
