Here is a man too honest to see these people as they see themselves -- the predatory women, the idle reactionary rich, the crooks, politicians, gamblers, the professional men, the migratory wives and children of servicemen, and the ordinary well-meaning citizens.On his twenty-four-hour journey in this microcosmic America, he also meets Nina Gilmore, stylist for a fashionable Fifth Avenue shop. She tries hard to see things Corbetts way, but it takes a train wreck to bridge the gap between soldier and civilian.
