KIRKUS REVIEW

For those who have plumbed the depths and heights of Farrell, through his Studs, Lonigan series and A World I Never Made, this will hold no surprises. It shows little growth or development, it is simply more of the same, filled with sordidness, religious superatitions of ignorant Catholics, poverty, family loyalty, family dismension, strong language -- and deep understanding of people of the city slums. The shook of the gutter talk was rubbed off by the earlier books, so this seems less harrowing (and equally less exaited). Again the O'Flaherty family during 1914 and 1915, and births, deaths, loves and damns are skilfully interwoven in the almost day-by-day record of an ignorant family.
