A long-short story, ideal small gift book, might pick up the same sort of sale that Goodbye, Mr. Chips has rolled up. A story of old age finding a place for itself in a world that would seem to have no use for it. Mr. Cohen feels that he has outlived his usefulness, so he starts out for a cross country walk, seeking to rediscover the eternal verities. He finds that there are countless ways in which he is needed, and life takes on a new flavor and meaning. The story has enough of a moral to appeal to a certain large class of readers, and is told simply and without the sugar-coating of sentimentality. A plus sale.
