Description: Written in 1958. Story of a young woman in Paris. Blurb from back of book: Sally Jay Gorce is a young woman with a mission. It's the 1950's, she's young, she's in Paris, she's dyed her hair pink, she's wearing an evening dress at eleven o'clock in teh morning and she's seldom had more fun. Having made a vow to go native in a way the natives never had the stamina for, she's busy gettin drunk, having affairs, losing money, losing jewellery and losing God knows what. Called to account by Larry, a fellow American who has gone abroad to "become a genius," she finds that instead of despising him and his familiaryt, something far more alarming is happening. The Dud Avocaco is the story of Sally Jay's rite of passage, a charming and hilarious novel which gained instant cult status on first publication and remains a timeless and inspiring portrait of a woman hellbent on living.
