KIRKUS REVIEW

Thinly veiled once more as fiction, Gogarty continues his autobiography. This time it is the English who are under fire. It is a Van Vechtenish sort of thing. As ""Ouseley"" he takes Yeats' command to heart, goes to England. The vicar, the shift-partners marital circle, a wedding, a long week end, the stately homes, their owners and their servants, social codes, eccentricities, perverted gallantry, clubs, pubs, and fairs --some witty, some dullish, some reminiscent, most of it self-conscious and egotistical. Gogarty has built a certain reputation in his speaking schedule across the country. If he has been to your town, you should have a market for this.
