Vincent O'Sullivan (1868-1940) was born into a prosperous Irish American family in New York and moved to London as a child.

Vincent spent much of his life in the demi-monde world that is the setting of "The Good Girl". While in Paris he was friends with Oscar Wilde, Leonard Smithers, Aubrey Beardsley and other fin-de-siècle personalities.

"The Good Girl" was first published in 1912 to a mixed reception. Some newspapers described it as "revolting", "unclean" and "ugly and depressing". Many authors of the time thought it distinctive and a work of genius.

The writer Robert Aickman wrote of O'Sullivan that: "The curious should try to find a copy of his novel, 'The Good Girl'. The quest is difficult, but the product distinctive... having lived a longish life as a more or less well-to-do rentier, in latish middle age found himself ruined, wrote his last book under terrible conditions, and, dying in Paris, ended anonymously in the common pit for the cadavers of paupers."

A contemporary review of the book by the "New York Times" is included for historical interest.
