KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of an artist's ""coming of age"" -- of his gropings to find himself, his conflicts with a wife who dislikes Bohemia and all its ways and takes his children away from him of how the illness of the oldest boy brings the artist to a realization of what fatherhood means. Artistic success through a portrait of his children paves the way for reconciliation, but a chance incident diverts him again. The character of the artist is delightfully drawn -- the story interesting -- the appeal to those who like a book off the beaten track, away from a conventional pattern.
