AT HOME IN MEXICO by Charles Allen Smart


Email this review


In San Miguel, where bells toll for every conceivable occasion, Mr. Smart (of R. F.D. fame) his wife, Peggy, and their son, Jamie, finally decided to buy a home and settle down for a while. Their adventures with Maria, the servant; Don Carlos, the man who supervised through his broken spectacles the remodeling of their house; Marciana, the ethereal beauty from Sweden who was robbed -- are written off with a light touch. The daily living schedule, the satisfactions and disappointments in writing, irregularities in routine are unified by the ""living-in-Mexico"" theme. We are introduced to the different customs and people and come away with the feeling that this sort of thing is, indeed, fun and doesn't cost too much.
