KIRKUS REVIEW

Collected- but never composed -- pieces which range from the palps of yesterday (which sound like the pulps of today) to family life an high spot incidents. His reviews of old favorites -- Flaming Youth, Three Weeks, The Sheik, Black Oxen, Replenishing Jessica, The Madonna of the Sleeping Cars -- are gems untarnished by any unnatural delicacy, his personal affairs remain in the familiar zany world and offer very, very funny laugh time reading. Fair warning to the initiated -- or, in the words of the master, ""chacun a son goo"".
