CROSSROADS

This was originally reported for Fall publication -- now postponed to this date. It was a Brazllian best seller, but one which seems at odds with American tastes, in a derisive, unpleasant picture of various unconnected individuals in a city community. His people -- rich and poor -- are all alike selfish, vain, lustful, complaining, meaningless, serving only to illustrate the idea that there is no real beauty in life. A consumptive, a professor, a public benefactor, a family of nouveauxriches with spoiled children, a spendthrift, a playboy, a prostitute -- these are a few among many in an unpalatable book, not slated for general consumption.
