KIRKUS REVIEW

Frankly disappointing -- a book with as large a canvas as Queer Street, but without the justification, since the final impression is one of confusion, of multiplicity of characters and slimly related incidents, without succeeding in creating an illusion of seeing them from the inside. The story deals with the ramifications of life in the career of an unsuccessful man, -- a man who fails in youth, who gets nowhere in business, who makes a mistake at each turn of the wheel emotionally, and who is finally beaten by ill health. And -- so what? However, the author's previous sales will create a certain demand.
