Charity Farnese was a tramp at best and a nut at worst and probably a lush in either case and nothing could come of her but trouble in the unlikely event that anything could come of her at all and whatever she made you feel in the heart in a minute or two of the tail of the night you had better play her a tune and let her go if you had any concern for what was left of your life She was a Park Avenue dame who dripped money wherever she went and she was focused on martinis even to the point where she couldn't remember where she had been who she had been with or how she had gotten to where she wasCharity had a husband Oliver Anton Farnese who was a straight arrow as it goes to the point where he planned every meal for the week and every shirt and tie he would wear for the entire week Charity would wake up in different beds and different apartments barely taking the time to wonder how she got there and tell her husband various lies about where she had been and with who He didn't take it very well not well indeed when Charity began to fall for Joe the fifth rate piano player and take Joe for weekends in the countryAs plot goes there is nothing complex or mysterious about Fletcher Flora's Park Avenue Tramp but Flora does such an incredible job of creating these characters that it is a fascinating read Charity likes to drink and to chat with bartenders who she thinks of as her friends and Flora's prose captures the dialogue of the bar Nobody has ever done a better job of capturing a self absorbed rich bitch boozing it up She is the delinuent angel drifting in out of a black fog and talking like a schizy intellectual But she is trouble with a capital T and any man who thinks he has built up an immunity can feel it wear off as this classy broad moves in and casts her spellAlthough there is very little action here compared to many crime novels Flora does such an excellent job of creating Charity's little world and putting the reader inside her silly head that it never feels slow This book for what little really occurs in it feels rich and lush and that's simply the power of great writing Just as a jazz musician might riff over and over on a particular theme always imbibing it with something Flora does that with the portrait he paints of poor little CharityThis volume is highly recommended although it is hard to properly categorize it

I'm noting this book here even though I read it as part of the Stark House omnibus volume A Trio of Gold Medals 2007 ISBN 978933586144 The reason is obviously that I want to note the three novels separatelyAccording to Charles Kelly's introduction in the Stark House volume which introduction I read after the novel of course Flora's original title for this piece was Girl from Park Avenue We can understand why the Gold Medal editor made the change the publisher was marketing its line of paperback originals as racy items likely to appeal to young white males but at the same time it's regrettable that the title change has meant that to a great extent the novel has been lost to us My estimation of its merit is that it belongs alongside such minor but noteworthy literary classics as Nathanael West's Miss Lonelyhearts Evelyn Waugh's The Loved One and Muriel Spark's Memento Mori second tier in other words but still remarkableThe plot's simplicity itself promiscuous upper crust NYC wife trapped in a loveless marriage to a an extraordinarily wealthy schedule bound sometimes sadistic husband wanders into a bar late one night and falls in love with the pianist He much against his better judgement lets her bed him Afterwards although she almost invariably wants her men for one night only she finds herself falling in something like love with him and he with her The husband who employs a PI to tail her to watch out in case exactly this kind of durable relationship should start to develop sets the wheels in motion to have the pianist put out of the picture What mark the book out are the style of the writing and the development of the characters While I was reading I felt the writing was like a sort of wrong side of the blanket child of Ellery ueen and Ed McBain although deeper and literate than either Later reading Kelly's introduction I discovered that the ueens were enthusiastic about Flora's work and as it were gave him some mentoring; so I felt smug about my perspicacity It moves gracefully onward with nary a hiccup drawing one right into the tale occasionally raising a smile even as the inevitable tragedy approaches It's ably assisted by Flora's flair for character creation these are real people it seems rather than just names and collections of behavioral traits As just a single example the central figure Charity emerges not just as a tramp but as a sort of Candide figure whose promiscuity we find ourselves sympathizing with rather than condemning she may be no profound thinker but she has a sweetness of thought and an essential innocence that make her a very appealing person She may have had lovers than she could count but what she seems to bring to each new liaison is love however fleetingly it might lastClearly I must look out for work by Flora I wish I'd discovered him decades ago Damn that title change
