KIRKUS REVIEW

Introduction to Venezuelan life, in an intimate all-over picture, colorful and revealing, through the author's account of her family and the way in which they lived. She contrasts the old traditions and ways of life with the new, -- women's place, the double standard, stories of her mother's activities as mistress of the household, her own convent training and its stultifying effect, excursions into the country, courting, rebellion at restrictions --entertaining reading all. There's pointed criticism of the shortcomings, and elucidation of national characteristics, interests, race problems, food, etc.
