Gaslight Sonatas

Description: 

Gaslight Sonatas is written by Fannie Hurst,. Seven short stories picturing life in New York. "Her people are the very people who have been most assiduously stultified by the cheap humor and false sentiment of the popular story-fakers: shopgirls, stenographers, floor walkers, cabaret singers, and the like. This writer knows them, and they are too close to her heart and her imagination to be used as the puppets of a mere trickster."
