KIRKUS REVIEW

Thirteen stories from Boyle's ""Revolution of the Word"" period in the early 1930's, when she was writing intense, lyrical, often semi-mystical treatments of small domestic crises from Paris, and before she began to write overt political tracts. As the somewhat obsequious introduction by Sandra Whipple Spanier suggests, very little ""happens"" in any of these stories--but what does happen happens with a lot of style and a solid sense of craft.
