KIRKUS REVIEW

A collection of sketches, essays, cartoons and drawings from many magazines transports an essentially quiet English humor and observation across the Atlantic. There are wry looks at sports, at the madness that derives from the ballet; there are speculations about Gainsborough's Blue Boy, women and Santa Claus; there are snatches of autobiographical memories and activities; and there are the pictures, lean of line and long on levity. A patchwork that is at once satirical and intelligent. There is an introduction by Malcolm Muggeridge which is a warm appreciation. A special audience.
