KIRKUS REVIEW

A gossamer, gadflighty sort of stuff-and-nonsense job, which crosses a bit of Wodehouse with a touch of Thirkell. A potpourri of situations at cross purposes with various characters on each others trails, -- Mrs. Linscroft in search of her cat, Lord Umbridge who has found it, Susan, runaway granddaughter who has attached herself to Mark, who was trying to break away from society after a broken engagement, but who is followed by Laura, ex-girl friend, and an attendant male, etc., etc. Situations precipitated and then neatly ironed out to mutual satisfaction. Here's the answer to a demand for frivolously flippant amusement, on the verge of farce. Engaging froth.
