KIRKUS REVIEW

It is decidedly to his advantage that Tobie Gillis' family lives next door to the only flat-roofed house in town, because, as each family is driven out by the din of seagulls breaking their clam shells on the flat roof, the new family that moves in always seems to have a daughter, approximately Tobie's age, who is just slightly more interesting than the last. Tobie tells of his continuous pursuit of females, from age 13 to 30, when he has finally married one of them and is struggling with the additional problems of bringing up an 8-year-oldson. Told with his distinctive brand of ease, fast-moving narrative, and good, clean fun, this will be for the Max Shulman fans and for those readers who enjoy an occasional bit of broad comedy.
