KIRKUS REVIEW

Gently satiric story of the return of an apostle of an eccentric creed to America -- of his friendship with a mother and daughter, both of whom vie for his attention, the mother winning. With a comfortable life thus opened to him, the sought-after apostle on whom the master's cloak has fallen finds himself growing away from the tenets of the rigorous system of the master and succumbs to the pleasant life....Humorous pricking of the cultural bubbles that fashionable folk go chasing after; good pictures of the intellectual crow whom nothing can shock. For the sophisticated audience, quiet enjoyment; appeal limited.
