KIRKUS REVIEW

Midnight on the Desert will provide an audience for these ""further chapters in an autobiography"". Though there is some overlapping, there are, roughly, four sections: personal experiences from January, 1937 to the present: shop talk of a playwright: social and political comments on the English: the stuff of dreams as related to more radical conceptions of time. His American travels and antipathies are well told, nicely tempered with humor; his analysis of the British mind and temper is keenly condemnatory; his notions of time provide new reflections of some fascination. It's stimulating and entertaining reading that is pleasant going.
