KIRKUS REVIEW

For this sort of book there is no excuse. Why does youth think that the public is interested in having his pursuit of a skirt laid out for meticulous inspection? For that is what this- and many like it- is primarily: pursuit of a job, by a dilettante, educated to nothing; pursuit of the war, when turned down by the draft board, he is quickly fed up with war work, volunteer and factory alike; pursuit of friendship, and finding it in one man; pursuit of a girl he can go for in a big- and relatively lasting-way, while tomcatting around with practically anyone. This is both dull and in bad taste. The setting- New York.
