'Nobody has ever quite pulled it off the way Cain does, not Hemingway, and not even Raymond Chandler' Tom Wolfe

Mildred Pierce is the story of a determined and ambitious woman who, after her feckless husband abandons her, by hard work and sacrifice builds a successful business to ensure the future of her pampered and selfish daughter.

But she isn't prepared for the intrigues and devastating betrayals of those closest to her.

This is James M Cain's most substantial novel and a classic of the Depression years.
