KIRKUS REVIEW

Only mildly interesting -- and gives an impression of failing on the side of accuracy. The author visited England in the early '50's -- this is the first time his account of that visit has been translated, and it seems unfortunately ""dated"", in style as well as subject matter. Possibly it would carry better with an English public than we feel likely here. If you wish to get something of the flavor of the book -- at its best -- dip into the chapter (IX) dealing with English country life. Or the section of chapter VIII concerned with English girls, on the hunt for husbands. Few shops will find much call for it.
