KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a blend of Weldman and Bemelmans. There's humor and perceptiveness, there's a bit more stream lining and hard-boiled disillusion than Bemelmans, and a bit more cosmopolitanism and knowledge of the world than Weidman. An account of a round the world cruise on a luxury liner, made in 1939; a fast-paced photograph record of things seen and experienced, interpreted briefly and not too profoundly, several and shared with charm and originality. There's also an intimate picture of the very worldly group of passengers with whom he saw the world (plus a goodly amount of time spent in various bars). Amusing drawings lives the text.
