KIRKUS REVIEW

Emphasizing that the fact that Good Housekeeping is a family and not just a woman's magazine, making a few concessions to space, this omnium gatherum of ""general reading matter"" is representative of this magazine's role in shaping American attitudes through the years. There are essays- from an interview with Shaw to a prophecy of Edison's; poems- Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Amy Lowell, Sara Teasdale, etc., and a great many short stories with a venerable list of contributors; Ruth Suckow; Rex Beach; Selma Lagerlof; Ellen Glasgow; Ring Lardner; Irvin S. Cobb; Somerset Maugham; etc., etc. This collection here has been designed to meet American tastes at all levels and it should succeed in pleasing a wide variety of readers.
