Review: Mildred Pierce (1941) (ISBN: 9780752852041)
Good news: Gripping novel….I read every single page slowly
enjoying an unforgettable character: Mildred Pierce
…a once-affluent now down-on-her-luck divorcee in south California
who succeeds through hard graft to establish a restaurant chain.
Good news: James M. Cain created the most conniving, wicked and black-hearted daughter
you will ever meet…Mildred’s daughter Veda.
Personal: This is a tense, prickly roman noir in which all the characters have significant flaws.
The book is excellent and I just ordered DVD so I can watch Joan Crawford’s Oscar winning performance Best Actress 1945.
Don’t miss this timeless classic nail-biter!! (Read book first….then the movie)
