Sub-titled ""Impressions of a Decade"" -- and partly fulfilling that. A strange volatile shadowy half-novel, with glimpses here and there into a group of rather provocative characters, half symbolic of youth in general, and its dreams, love, action and perfection. Through the medium of a selfish young Jewess this is partly carried out, as the author follows her story through a love affair, a colorless marriage, another tenuous affair and again marriage. There is little cohesion, little rounding out either of character or plot. But again there are interesting situations, often stimulating writing and some challenging characterizations. Limited in appeal, to a rather esoteric market.
