KIRKUS REVIEW

Another collection of this popular columnist and lecturer's forays -- into the world of the theater, books, movies, personalities, reminiscences. There's a lengthy introduction to the Portable Lamb which combines literary criticism and biography attractively; there are appreciations of Churchill, Helen Hokinson, Robert Sherwood, Philip Barry, Maxwell Perkins; there's a visit to an old teacher, the trials and tribulations of summer husbands, the art and importance of conversation, the contrast of the G.A.R. and today's veterans, the pleasures of etiquette and manners; there are pieces on the Lunts, Mae West, Clifton Webb, Laurence Olivier, and Katherine Hepburn; and there are reviews of the season's plays and pictures. Again the pleasing ease of style and the stimulation of a lively mind mark these readable pages.
