KIRKUS REVIEW

The concerned ""old novelist"" appears again since Armageddon is here and now: even Lucifer says things are ""out of hand""--wars, muggings, violence, et terrible al.--and sends someone to ""cool it"" in the form of Buckthorne, while Heaven is represented by Sophia. Together they stroll from the graceful Plaza to the noisy Garden and realize they're on the same ""errand"" while they fall in love; a woman teaches Sophia about the old values and says something is certainly a-Ms. with marriage; and Buckthorne makes his discovery of the megas virus or factor which induces megalomania and all the troubles we're experiencing. A restorative little message with the instant dissolve of a bouillon cube.
