KIRKUS REVIEW

Satirical picture of fun and games in the London literary racket, with imitations of various authors' styles, exaggerations galore, amusing bits and light entertainment. Cockney Pawsey adopts a pseudonym and publishes a modern sequel to Gulliver's Travels, which, he declares, Swift has dictated to him from the spirit world. Then another interpreter of the spirit world crosses wires with his, both record plays by Shakespeare, and both rackets are nipped in the bud. Utter nonsense -- a modern author's Houseboat on the Styx sort of thing.
