Memory and desire by Leonora Hornblow( Book )

"A novel of love and marriage and of the precise nature of the attractions that bring men and women together and the emotional cross currents that impel them to drift apart. The scene of the novel is New York and Hollywood; the characters are men and women of the world but not too worldly to love, more often casually, but sometimes as in this book, seriously and even hopelessly. Mrs. Hornblow describes life in the highest echelons of Hollywood and the more sophisticated circles of New York with wit and rueful understanding." -- Publisher's description
