KIRKUS REVIEW

And more than a slight sense of recognition for these pieces from The Atlantic Monthly and elsewhere, as Mr. Morton views, with an undeceived eye, the world around him. At home and abroad, the radio and mail order catalogs, an outline for a fish and a ghost story, the male as a solo host, cliches and the ""elongated yellow fruit"" style, beer and ale, shoes and hats, dog schools and barbecues, carving and trade-ins -- these are but a few of the topics that get a going over. There are notes on books, plagiarism, the entertainment media, the formidableness of women; spoofs on various types of reading and comment on the many kinks and quirks of his fellow men -- and his own... Relaxed and relaxing, this omnium gatherum is companionable and friendly in its variety and commentary.
