KIRKUS REVIEW

Another contribution to the shelf of country editors, the memoirs of a small town editor, which has for its emphasis the human interest angle of the people and events of his town. Very much along the line of Sherwood Anderson's Home Town in its insistence on leisure for recognition of real values. Without being able to place precisely the locals of ""Grand City"", one has a feel of the prairies. Through the growing pains of the small town paper he buys, one learns to know the town and its people, and the paper proved a mine of incident, events and characters that completely filled and satisfied his world.
