KIRKUS REVIEW

You can practically feel Cornelia Skinner jogging Emily's elbow as she recounts the work and fun they had in Hollywood while working on the script of Khen Our Hearts Were Young And Gay. Misadventures started before they were on the train. Wrong things happened to them, individually and collectively; Cornelia, seeking to smooth the way commits gaffes while Emily cooperates with awkward gestures; they turn themselves and their well-wishers upside down. They meet celebrities -- often disastrously -- they learn something about making pictures -- they do their job and fail to recognize the results. But Cornelia gets a part in The Uninvited; and Emily is recalled to act as technical adviser on the filming of their own picture....Maturer meanderings; lacks the hoydenish quality of the earlier book --but amusing and pleasant, with quieter humor.
