RARA-AVIS: Still on Pauline Smith,

So, Bill, what did you learn from Smith about Chicago Paperback House?

There seems to be at least these books under the same byline: THE END OF THE LINE (1970), BRUSH FIRE! (1979; juvenile?) and HOLD YOURSELF DEAR (1965). CARNAL GREED has a great cover art, there's one seller at Abe showing it, check it out.

THE END OF THE LINE jacket copy (from Abebooks):

"This book is about three teen-age wards of a California School for Delinquent Girls..The dilemma of an individual in an institution that cannot always recognize individuality is strongly felt. The girls' inability to help themselves out of trouble; their need for an outside friend; their return to the same environment that sent them to the School..The author forces her reader to confront the individual: to care about her, to understand her situation, and to see the futility of much of what is done for her.."


PS. Cat Marsala? What kind of name is that?
