KIRKUS REVIEW

A reflective record of a season is used for the pursuit and investigation of the author's interests along literary and historical byways and offers a rich fare for the linger-longer reader. It offers too a series of explorations, generally on foot, to particular areas and places, among them, wells and cemeteries; it considers actual people and characters from books and the environment in which they lived, and it does not forget cricket, rugby and other sporting events. These personal pilgrimages record observations and opinions on the Christmas scene, pantomime, cellars and crypts, art exhibits, the riverside, the woods, the Tower, the suburbs and the City -- in companionable familiarity, and open many a new area of speculation and information. Seductive reading for London travellers, past and present, for ""dowly"" days.
