SEEING THINGS

The admirable critic's collection of recent articles -- on the theatre, books, personalities, radio, moving pictures; of his own personal opinions and feelings. You'll meet again Woollcott, La Guardia, Pyle, G. B. Shaw, George Jean Nathan,- you'll trace the influence of Disney, and brush up on judgments of the plays of recent years. There are several episodes of incidents with his own children that have a strong parental appeal; incidents of public prejudice, a variety of characters as their work is discussed --the Lunts, Bobby Clark, Danny Kaye, Beatrice Lillie, Margaret Webster, Katherine Cornell, and many others. He offers a sophistication balanced with a real effort of evaluation, a charm of style that is often brightened by a precise humor. Rather for his definite public than the general reader.
