IMITATION OF LIFE

Ran under the title SUGAR HOUSE as a serial in Pictorial Review, and secured a certain amount of popular approval from the ""circulating-library-at-the-corner-drug-store"" audience. A disappointing book from the author of LUMMOX, or even of FIVE AND TEN. A machine-made success story, with the heroine patterned, presumably, on Alice Foote MacDougall. Careless writing, cheap effects, with one bit of sensationalism in the episode of the almost white daughter of the old colored cook, and of the girl's determination to marry a white man and ""pass"".
