BREWSIE AND WILLIE

Email this review

KIRKUS REVIEW

Wars I Have Seen broke Gertrude Stein's sales record. And here, with no apology to Bill Mauldin, are Miss Stein's Brewsie and Willie, Brewsie who does a lot of thinking because he's got a lot of time- in the Army- to think, and Willie who is a born listener. Brewsie thinks out loud about fraternisation, prejudice, back home and problems of isolationism, unemployment, industrialism and a coming depression; he also thinks about the Negro, in the South and in the Army; just occasionally he thinks about the Germans, but most of the time he thinks about America, and what's wrong with it- and he's usually right. Miss Stein at her most lucid and most liberal, and making sense on both scores most of the time.
