Signed and inscribed by the Author. Octavo, tan cloth (hardcover), vi, 175 pp. Fine (As New) in a Fine (As New) dust jacket. From jacket: The distance between Llano and Marlin, Texas and New York not only spans miles but lifetimes. Llano, located in the Texas Hill Country, was a cowtown...Marlin was an extension of the Old South where cotton plantations and stately mansions still reflected its ante-bellum past. At the insistence of her iron-willed mother, Roalis was uprooted and replanted in New York City at the age of fourteen. She was never able to escape her mother's dedicated pursuit of improvement....My Odyssey is a very personal and fascinating glimpse of a life lived to its fullest. Roaslis' family and extended family were people of wealth, so she enjoyed trips to Europe - especially Paris - and moved in the elite social circles of New York. Her life moved to a full circle when her husband, Bob, returned from Europe after World War II and she first gave up an acting career and later a writing career with Look magazine to return to Texas...
