KIRKUS REVIEW

Humorous essays, parts of which appeared in the Atlantic and the Sportsman. The author retired at an early age -- 45 -- and here recounts aspects of the gentleman of leisure. On building a new home -- on debts and a budget -- on the social rounds and club life of the town -- on planning summer for the family -- on a vacation in the South -- on managing a family of five pulling in five directions. Homely everyday things recounted in genial, old world manner. Quietly amusing, but pretty slight.
