Thoroughly upsetting nightmarish story, with a dubious beginning and a yet more dubious end. A sort of Thorne Smith gone loco, minus his usual interblending of sex phantasms. The story of a man of uncertain mental equipment immured in a department store while civilization has been, apparently swept from the earth. The embarrassment of plenty -- with no satisfaction in possession. Parts of it are so well done that it seems a pity that it is confused by nightmares of confusion and -- at times -- unmotivated horrors.
