KIRKUS REVIEW

An assured graceful touch for these stories (from the New Yorker) of women of New York and its suburbs, of the frailties, the downright nastiness of the gentler sex. The spinster cousin, the widowed mother, the celebrity, the in-law, victory gareners and afternoon-bridgers, the draft and servant problem, shopping and Park Avenue doctoring, marriages and marriages. Here and there, young love, the adolescent and his first humiliation, the rivalries.....Modulated marksmanship.
