Content descriptions

General Note: "Originally published by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., in 1941."
Summary, etc.: Mildred Pierce had gorgeous legs, a way with a skillet, and a bone-deep core of toughness. She used those attributes to survive a divorce and poverty and to claw her way out of the lower middle class, but Mildred also had two weaknesses: a yen for shiftless men, and an unreasoning devotion to a monstrous daughter.
