KIRKUS REVIEW

Fitzgerald's only play, out of print since 1940, is--of all things--a political satire. Jerry Frost, railroad clerk, gets soused on the eve of Warren Harding's nomination and by extraordinary mischance finds himself in the White House. This edition of Fitzgerald's experimental work includes previously unpublished scenes, revisions, addenda. The play probably won't be on Broadway next season but Edmund Wilson called it ""exhilarating humor.
