KIRKUS REVIEW

The Unbearable Bassington has a successor in Edward, parasite on the bounty of a ""wholesome"" maiden aunt, whom he despises and plots to eliminate in every conceivable way. An elaborately engineered automobile accident -- a fire -- poison -- all in vain. Then the postlude has a totally unexpected twist. Good fun, original, and refreshing. It might catch on and prove a runaway. Watch it.
