STONES FROM A GLASS HOUSE

Contemporary carolling by a welcome competent- this collection, after five years' absence from the book (though not the magazine) world. A catchy rhyme sense, a wide variety of subjects', all with a daily life, household and intimate appeal, a spry alertness to topics of the times, these ditties range from gay to grave, as the first section lightly glints on children, beauty parlors, anthologising, rainy weekends, Christmas cards, hospitals, and the mixture as before: the second part concerns itself with war-happenings, news, incidents, pressures and regulations, and the moment of victory... There's Irony and not a little wisdom throughout- the whole is a neat-handed selection of McGinley's macrocosm.
