KIRKUS REVIEW

31 sketches whose deadly revealing precision, range of character, situation and idiom impale human nature mercilessly...From two testimonials of unbelievable understatement, whose content is entirely opposite from their context, -- two of the well-known Pal Joey letters, several Hollywood and moving picture delineations, marital misadventures, to the eerie events preceding a country club dance, situations involving returned servicemen, the tragedy of a middleaged couple, etc. -- these vary from straight narration to dialogue, in tight concentration.
