KIRKUS REVIEW

Stellar symposium of contributors, and an expert selection from all kinds of writing about youth, combine to make an anthology for all tastes, literary and popular. Here is the ""freshness of the vision of the young"", the humor and gaiety and sadness, the awkwardness and tenderness as evoked by many of classical standing (Proust, Santayana, Katherine Mansfield Mark Twain, Clarence Day); others of more modern but equally pernnial appeal (James Street, Irwin Edman, Mackinlay tor, Ludwig Bencley, Hemingway, Steinbeck, Marjorie Rawlings, Bertha Damon, Robert Benchley, Cornelis Otis Skinner, Thurber and others). Minimum of new names for a maximum of high merit and lasting enjoyment. Short stories, excerpts from novels, bits of autobiography, essays.
