(From the publisher):
Set against an atmospheric backdrop of the city in the months just begore America's entry into World War II, A Time to be Born is a scathing and hilarios study of cynical New Yorker's stalking each other for various selfish ends. At the center of the story are a wealthy, self-involved newspaper publisher and his scheming, novelist wife, Amanda Keeler. Powwell always denied that Amanda Keeler was based upon the real-life Clare Boothe Luce, until years later when she discovered a memo she'd written to herself in 1939 that said, "Why not do novel on Clare Luce?" which prompted Powell to write in her diary "Who can I believe? Me or myself?"
