KIRKUS REVIEW

A selection, dating from 1928 to 1938, of the casual, entertaining biographies that appear weekly in The New Yorker, which range from Jim Londos to Queen Mary, George M. Cohan to Bishop Manning, Father Divine to Vincent Astor, Harpo Marx to Georgia O'Keefe, etc. Gilbert Seldes, Alvah Johnson, Wolcott Gibbs, Alexander Woollocott are among the many authors of these short and long sketches, and it's good random reading.
