KIRKUS REVIEW

A magnum of youthful spirits is drawn from some 65 college humor magazines- over an almost equal number of years- and is a generous gathering (close to 600 pages) of stories, satire, verse, sports, jokes, history rewritten and languages lacerated. Mr. Shulman, no slouch himself (he is also well represented here), tags college humor with three common characteristics,- an irreverence toward authority, a love for the outlandish, and a preoccupation with sex. The collection is genuinely fresh, funny and only occasionally rowdy. A closing section- ""The Old Grad"" includes some pieces by Thurber, Waugh, Stephen Leacock, and H. Allen Smith... A wide audience could be tapped- practically nobody has been graduated out of this class.
