CABBAGE HOLIDAY by Anthony Thorne
Kirkus Star


Email this review


This is fun and ideal early summer -- or late summer --entertainment. A pleasantly ribald tale in perfect taste, if you accept the anomaly. A ""Nutmeg Tree"" heroine taking a vacation from the ""house"" of which she is the Madame in Paris, and going to England for a ""cabbage holiday"" finds that she likes the English very much, although she is constantly startled and puzzled by them, while on their side, they take her for something quite other than what she is, and all sorts of unexpected and unpredictable contingencies occur. There is less intensity and drama than in Thorne's delightful Delay in the Sun, but in its way it is just as entrancing a book.
