KIRKUS REVIEW

An excellent collection -- but a misnomer, for the the ""modern"" note is chiefly conspicuous by its absence, and the authors represented stand, for the most part, for the conservative tradition. Biography is represented by an extract from The Du Mauriers; and Madame Curie; History, -- The 100 Years; Short Stories, -- Walpole, Ferber, Sinclair, Lewis, Clemence Dane; Crime -- The Lizzie Borden Case; Nature -- Henry Beaton and David Grayson; Drama -- Noel Coward; Americana -- Kenneth Roberts; Poetry -- Stephen Vincent Benet; a Novel -- THE MOON AND SIXPENCE.
