KIRKUS REVIEW

A thoroughly unskilled researcher, Mr. Lardner surveys the suburbs and the aberrant behavior patterns that his impromptu organization of the Suburban Research Institute investigated. The outcome of a disorganized day of tennis, the SRI set up its plan and procedures and went to work on the questions of games and parties, weekend pursuits, wives and husbands, and areas of mortal combat. The findings, due to the highly individual methods of interpretation, may baffle some but they satisfied the Institute-as they may other inhabitants of this terra cognita. Not as distinctively funny as Out of the Bunker and into the Trees, (1960) this has a special target for its humor.
