Remember Julia Strachey's Cheerful Weather for the Wedding? This suggests that barbed and biting tale -- but the sting is out, though there are a few sharp touches in a pleasant picture of a day of excitement. From the waking of the principals to the departure of the happy couple -- an excursion into the lives of quite human people. Not an important book, and with less plot than Mackail's recent novels, and not quite the fun of Greenery Street, with its wider applications. Essentially English -- and well bred.
