The Pretender; A Story of the Latin Quarter, Service, Robert W.
9 Service, Robert W. The Pretender; A Story of the Latin Quarter
New York Dodd, Mead, & Company 1914 First Edition Hard Cover Good Plus No Jacket 12mo - over 6" - 7" Tall. 
Grey cloth on boards. No reviews found. Service seems to be off on an ego trip which, lacking direction, reminds me of the beats. Interesting that he suggests going to London as a social missionary, which he does in real life in another book. He invents friends and even family. By the third chapter I was completely befuddled. 349 pp.
