KIRKUS REVIEW

A tongue in check parody of the conventional story of the rich youth who made good in the big bad world -- and who chose as his battleground, one of the ""twobit"" stores which supply him with this world's goods at the expense of grinding the faces of the poor. It is not amusing enough to carry over -- the result is sensational (deliberately) and overdrawn. In the end he gets the girl -- reforms the company, and lands a real job. For those who remember the subtle humor of many of the stories in Apes and Angels, this seems a distinct disappointment.
