KIRKUS REVIEW

The parade of the magazine field, which passes little recognition to the big flats, and/or the formula fiction of mass circulation, this depends on the thoughtful, absorbed concentration of new writers, from sometimes lesser known periodicals, conforming to the standards established by Story. Here are newly remembered names, Bessie Breuer, Jessamyn West, Jean Stafford, Benedict Thielen, Eudora Welty, David Cornel De Jong, etc. In the Prize winners, John Clayton Bell's The White Circle for first prize has a smash approach in a murder-thought theme: second prize is Eugene L. Burdick's Rest Camp on Maui which emphasizes the break between possible newspaper publicity and fighting men's integrity; third prize for Elizabeth Parsons' The Nightingales Sing which New Yorker readers will hauntingly remember, the little girl whose host entertained with a mistress.. For the follower of the short story development, in its closer application.
