KIRKUS REVIEW

Some sketches of continental experiences to which the author lends her own cosmopolitan touch, this record of places and conversations and contacts has a casual spontaneity and intimate charm. And an infinite variety of scenes and incidents provoke a personal response: Chinese gardens and Mongolian larks; a Highland holiday; a Polish countess in Switzerland and a magician on a train; the rag rooms backstage of the Parisian couturiers and a greenhaired lady on the Riviera; Honolulu on Pearl Harbor Day; amok in Bali and berserk in Johannesburg; a cure in a French spa; a party for a pedigreed pup named Poppet in Paris; a girl alone in a Dublin bar; etc. etc. Mrs. Mackay travels light- indeed- and her pieces have a personable if incidental appeal.
