This is an auction for THE LONELY by Paul Gallico.

Amazon.com reviews:

"FIVE STARS!! Paul Gallico is one of the best authors I've ever had the pleasure of reading works of. His writing has a real beauty about it that is at times poignant and sometimes so deliciously innocent, but it always has a deep truth to it. In a world of ideals, the love portrayed in this book is something one would aspire to. Events, emotions, everything in this book is so gorgeous, it's truly difficult to put down and incredibly easy to re-read. This book is deliriously good, especially for anyone who believes love is important."

"FIVE STARS!!!! This is a treat of a book. Paul Gallico was a master at describing the uncertainty of being in love, and not knowing whether your feelings are reciprocated. The atmosphere and lives of a handful of people in England during the Second World War are so vividly brought to life that you care deeply about what will happen to them: the central character is Jerry, an American with a sweetheart back home, but a wish to have a good time with the English WAAFs and to "become a man". The reader is swept along by his heart-rending dilemma, and you simply cannot guess how things will be resolved until the last few pages. I have heard that a film is to be made; I fervently hope that it will be sensitively done."
