KIRKUS REVIEW

Who is Celeste DuBraud? Was she truly a nurse to a psychiatrist who had committed suicide -- or justifiably a ""guest"" at Millburn -- a castle keep for forcibly detained patients? Dr. Quilley, who runs it, believes they should be there permanently; Dr. Moore, who seems more sympathetic, is more inclined to let them go; but another Dr. Bessemer, with a vlawless invlection, voiders ""Vhen da time comes, und da guest iss vready to go, vot do you do den?"" And who is Susan Claudia? The copyright might indicate further role-playing (William Johnson), but in any case this is silly enough to assume that the audience, as out of sight and out of mind as the inmates of Millburn, is a docile one.
