KIRKUS REVIEW

All temperatures and climates of mental, emotional, social, racial moments, in short to long places by a distinctive stylist. There are home fronts -- and soldier episodes:- there is Germany, Spain, Mexico, Poland, North Carolina, New York City: there are eccentric spinsters, married couples, children, young men, women, refugees, evacuees -- there are futile gestures, irritations, escapes from routine, sparks of vitality engendered by origin, discrepancies of character, emotional impetus firing a situation, etc., etc. Evocative, crystallization of moods and characters, with a fine elegance of presentation. An appreciative. If exclusive, audience for this.
