(From the publisher):
Young Artie Kipps, draper's assistant, is desperate to escape a living death in the retail trade. Embarking on self-improvement he allows first a lady, then an unexpected legacy, to turn his head - until, paradoxically, "ruin" saves him. From the savoir faire of high society to the pomp and gravitas of playwrights and socialists, Kipps pokes fun at a gallery of social pretensions.
