    (2/2) On the cover there was a distance picture of the female mc from behind I believe, the title had a lady's name in it I think that name begins with G,B,J,or E (it's not the Bell Jar), the color was tan off white for the outside of the book with Violet purple for the text on the back that possibly described her as being more cheerful or morose than Holden Caulfield only she was older. My library had it for sale but when I went recently it wasn't there. It's one of those books I'm not sure it was a memoir and I would instantly know if it was the book I'm looking for as soon as I see it. When I looked at the front it gave me a Catcher in the rye/Scott Fitzgerald feel kind of. The time frame it might've taken place is 1920-1970. Well a reviewer compared the main female character as Salinger's Holden and there might've been mention of jazz and drums on the back for something, either to describe a character and her likes, or the time period.

      Googling, I found several reviews of Mathilda Savitch by Victor Lodata that compared the main character to Holden Caulfield. Could that be it?

      I think the author was female. Thanks for looking though! There was also purple mixed in with the tan/off white color on the cover

      The picture on the front was a realistic faded picture I think of a women from behind

      ^ thanks I checked but no it’s not, I think I remember the front as having a purple font saying “the next female Holden Caulfield, or “like a female Holden Caulfield from Salinger himself”
