KIRKUS REVIEW

This sequel to is compounded of the same ingredients again aplied to the current social scene, and embodies a columnist's carps on a variety of things. With the fabulous Grenadine's death her four sons, Abercrombie, Peter, Jeter and Uranium, and a vaguely remembered other offspring (who turns out to be omnipresent Opal) take over her empire and positions in the military, moving pictures, science and propaganda...as World War II and Korea came over the pike. A widespread spatter-pattern of hard, and fogged, hits, this has fun with newspapers, advertising, publishing, economics and other discussed areas, and ends with Uranium blowing up the world..... The broadness and baldness of the lampooning blurs the sharp outline of what superior goofer dust can do.
