KIRKUS REVIEW

This collection of short stories, most of them not much larger than their subjects -- they are all about children and parents --are unfailingly appealing and have their base in everyday experience. Most of them have had magazine publication. Death is a frequent familiar; a grandmother dying on a midwestern farm; a cat; and the 10-year-old girl in The Good Children. Whose Little Girl Are You is quietly shattering, balanced by There Are Smiles, where the bright smile of an 8-year-old ""included love and his ball-point pen."" A mother's weekend at college with a dreadfully intense young girl, who speaks in italics, is sharply captured in The Permanent End. This is a domestic literary talent, sentimental in the nicest kind of way and demonstrating the successful short story based on the everyday experience.
