SEASON IN THE SUN AND OTHER PLEASURES

Polluck with Mr. Gibbs- and a very good gamble for your risibilities-with your choice of chitchat from the New Yorker, lethal parodies, the small, neat absurdities of life on Fire Island, random sketches, theatrical and moving picture commentary, notes on books and newspapers, etc., (but never ad nauseam). No buffoon, but rather the court jester in his ability to underscore a weakness, to turn a foible into a fable, to shake a lance at chi-chi, and to sabotage preposterousness. As a social commentator he is perhaps without the warm sympathy of E. B. White, but he is no less the wielder of the telling out, the mental wit, the champion of the civilized simplicity and these articles, even if read before, have the power to create a complete enjoyment for the reader. Gorgeous Gibbs gallimaufry.
