KIRKUS REVIEW

Most women who come out of Hollywood (Sheilah Graham; Joan Crawford) seem to write this kind of heart-to-heart, back-chatting, newspaper column type advice -- ""why not dish out a little hope"" now that ""A lot of rhinoceros-hided women with thick glasses, long words, have been writing about you as a drab wash-out who is a slave to a stove and a toy to a husband."" Pamela Mason doesn't hold with Kate Millett or Margaret Mead, or Norman Mailer or for that matter Freud -- she's got her own things to say about marriage and children and sex and homosexuality (it's perfectly fine even if ""those fancy popular writers and playwrights seem to be homosexuals"" and have been degrading women) and money and jobs (there should be more women in politics) and there's a little of a more practical nature about make-up and dieting and cosmetic surgery. She talks a lot without saying much of anything.
