KIRKUS REVIEW

The interest in editing as a potential profession is at a peak, and for any young person who has this field as a goal, this book of an editor in the making will be of immense value and interest. It is a second volume of reminiscences by the editor of the Atlantic Monthly and is very closely linked with the whole period of his indoctrination and early experience, and then goes on through the years of operating not only an increasingly successful magazine, but a relatively young press. The brief biographies- from a very personal angle as editor- of some of the outstanding Atlantic authors -- provide some insight into contemporary writing and writers. Besides this, Weeks' many sided interests, his love of the outdoors, of fishing, his interest in people and the opportunity to know his own country, his travels in Europe add up to a fruitful and eventful life and introduce to his readers a good companion.
