LIFE WITH FATHER by Clarence Day
Kirkus Star


Email this review


Mostly New Yorker material, telling of the finely tempered father, whose orders, whims, beliefs, manners, customs, etc. made life for his family a constant series of calamities, excitements and general upsets. A thoroughly likeable old gentleman emerges from these sketches, though one with whom it would be rather precarious to live. Amusing characterization -- and at the same time a mirror of the times....Good chance for plus sale in the previously published God and My Father (Knopf), which is co-choice with this as Book-of-the-Month choice for August. And yet another plus sale in Scenes from the Mesozoic (Yale Press). Woolcott admirers fall in line.
