KIRKUS REVIEW

With Seidman and Son breaking into Broadway next season, there in a natural for a new panel in the Seidman story. Once again he is a park bench narrator, telling his avid listener (which now includes a goodly array of book readers) about the trip he rather reluctantly agreed to take to the Far East. The lure was a chance to get an agreement giving him an ""In"" on some choice Oriental Fabrics. But the oul payoff came in the entertainment offered him- a geisha party, and an unexpected dividend which he was utterly unprepared to take. How his deep rooted and traditional moral code put up barriers and blinders- and how his lack of understanding destressed the lovely ge girl who had taken him home- and shocked the inflexible businessman, who would have no part of America moral codes adds up to Mr. Seldman taking another look at the dening effect of travel and viidity of his own standards. There's a quaint twist to the in which the role of parent wins out. Again a bit of Yiddish selment put forth in new clothes and utterly delightful.
