Summer at Tiffany by Marjorie Hart

Do you remember the best summer of your life? New York City, 1945. Marjorie Jacobson and Marty Garrett arrive fresh from the Kappa house at the University of Iowa hoping to find summer positions as shopgirls. Turned away from the top department stores, they miraculously find jobs as pages at Tiffany & Co., becoming the first women to ever work on the sales floor. Hart takes us back to the magical time when she and Marty rubbed shoulders with the rich and famous, pinched pennies to eat at the Automat, and danced away their weekends with dashing midshipmen. Between being dazzled by Judy Garlands honeymoon visit to Tiffany, celebrating VJ Day in Times Square, and mingling with Cafe society, she fell in love, made important decisions that would change her future, and created the remarkable memories she now shares with all of us.|This warm account of more innocent times makes an unspoken comparison with the way we live now. A fond backwardglance.|A charming story of a charmed summer.I didnt want Marjorie Harts effervescent memoir to end.|This book offers insights into the women who lived through World War II. Its a perfect Mothers Day gift.|The (Tiffany) company should put this book on prominent display, for heavens sake-its that much of a paean.|Harts infectious vivacity resonates with a madcap immediacy, delectably capturing the citys heady vibrancy and a young girls guileless enchantment.|What do you imagine might be the most memorable summer of your life? Do you think its happened yet|Charming and fun.reminiscent of The Best of Everything and Breakfast at Tiffanys.|Marjorie Hart is the former chairman of the Fine Arts Department at the University of San Diego.|Hart writes about that stylish summer with verve, recollecting with a touching purity a magical summer in Manhattan.
