KIRKUS REVIEW

Together with Other Modern Literary Characters, this is a collection of parodies, well spiked with puns, that spare no flagellations for their targets. Hemingway, T. S. Eliot, Capote, Velikovsky, Thomas Merton, along with cookbooks, alcoholics, new sciences, picture books, psychoanalysis, historical fiction, poetic criticism, mysteries and joke books all come in for more than a heavy handed ribbing. Under the load of the unremitting pile-on, there is some humor -- which (in Drapetics) is sometimes questionable.
