O is for O'Hara. A masterpiece of American fiction and a bestseller upon its publication in 1935, Butterfield 8 lays bare with brash honesty the unspoken and often shocking truths that lurked beneath the surface of a society still reeling from the effects of the Great Depression. One Sunday morning, Gloria wakes up in a stranger's apartment with nothing but a torn evening dress, stockings, and panties. When she steals a fur coat from the wardrobe to wear home, she unleashes a series of events that can only end in tragedy. Inspired by true events, Butterfield 8 caused a sensation on its publication for its frank depiction of the relationship between a wild and beautiful young woman and a respectable, married man.
