KIRKUS REVIEW

This is considerably more than a revision, since all but six of the selections are new (for this volume). First class names and first class writing, these excerpts from Sheean, Steffans, Clarence Day, John Reed, James Joyce. There's Untermeyer on Amy Lowell, Logan Pearsall Smith on Whitman, Van Wyok Brooks on Thoreau, Wolcott Gibbs on Henry Luce (remember it in the New Yorker?), Gunther on Chiang Kaishek, and other names as good. A grand collection of material for reading and study.
