KIRKUS REVIEW

A close-up of society, which is ""having a revival"" offers no judgments but a great many facts about this sphere of prominence and prestige which is just as desirable as it ever was but perhaps more accessible. There is more room at the top. Its social register- not just ""a glorified telephone directory""; its status symbols; its one world of hairdressers, of homes, clothes, menus (no variety), dogs and boats; its clubs; the benevolent activities which offer the surest means of infiltration; the right schools which precede the debut and The League; the social secretary- and the press agent (a more horrifying artifact- $3000 to $4000 a month), etc., etc., this has not the tone of Cleveland Amory but it is a highly informing tattletale- full of names and eyebrow-lifting (to some hair-raising) encounters. The title alone assures a certain entree.
