KIRKUS REVIEW

A long jump from Winter Term, just as good of its kind, and with much greater commercial potentialities. Here is an incisive, dramatic, cutting picture of big money and its holders from Wall Street to Newport; socialites, brokers, parvenus, drones. Centered is Philip Hazen, well liked heir to millions and to a big brokerage house, and he recognizes that new lines must be taken, if the old house is to be saved. There is his wife, Veronica, metallic, patronizing, Boston millionairess; there is Donald, his weakling brother and Catherine, the girl he loves, but who loves Philip; there is the ruthless opportunist who uses Philip as the object of his revenge on the Newport that spurned him, takes his all, and leaves him to a new start. It is a holding, tense story of The Street, a spurious, relentless merry-go-round. Good reading for men.
