KIRKUS REVIEW

Uppercrust biography, without any nutritious filling, of a self-exiled American. Running through two fortunes, saved by a carefully guarded third, Wall knew New York society and the fleshpots, horse racing, good living, and sports. He next turned to Europe for greener fields, and found it wholly palatable to his taste for ""relaxation"". Here is a panorama of socialites, of cosmopolitan circles, titled and untitled, as he tells of his war and post-war activities, eulogizes his wife, and provides a book for the Lehr market. Class conscious, and minor.
