HER INFINITE VARIETY spins the charmingly wicked tale of Clara Hoyt, perhaps one of the most colorful characters in the Auchincloss oeuvre. Employing uncommon savvy and elan, she charts a wildly entertaining course to the inner sanctum of New York's aristocracy and to the boardrooms of the publishing world. With characteristic urbanity and wit, Auchincloss offers a larger comment on what some women did to get ahead in the middle of the twentieth century.
