KIRKUS REVIEW

This may prove to be one of those perehnials like Eneas Africanus -- a classic story in gift book form (drawings by F. R. Gruger). Those who have read Exit Laughing will recognize it as the chapter entitled ""Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory,"" a chapter composed of anecdotes of Cobb's Negro friends in Paducah, and culminating in the account of the post-war mass meeting to honor their dead, a meeting at which Cobb was the only white speaker. Laughter and tears, sentiment handled by a master.
