'Nobody has ever quite pulled it off the way Cain does, not Hemingway, and not even Raymond Chandler' Tom Wolfe Mildred Pierce is the story of a determined and ambitious woman who, after her feckless husband abandons her, by hard work and sacrifice builds a successful business to ensure the future of her pampered and selfish daughter.
But she isn't prepared for the intrigues and devastating betrayals of those closest to her.
This is James M. Cain's most substantial novel and a classic of the Depression years.
