KIRKUS REVIEW

. . . may be a bastion of faith or a prison of loneliness. Testaments and short stories and essays by Pearl Buck, George Santayana, W. Somerest Maugham, Thomas Wolfe, D. H. Lawrence, Graham Greene and many others invoke the questing, mercurial, vacillating, transcendent states man knows in being, sharing, daring, doing, living, feeling and wondering. There are moods of affirmation and of despair, of isolation and self-discovery. Familiar names ruminate for a philosophic market on the soul and its states.
