THE TREASURY STAR PARADE by William A. -- Ed. Bacher
Kirkus Star


Email this review


Those who have listened to the Treasury Hour programs will welcome the news that here are the best of those scripts in book form. Skilful adaptation of stories, headline material, verse and drama have succeeded in putting over ideas and ideals of democracy, of our place in the world today, of the pathos and heroism and tragedy of the pattern forming week by week. For distinctive flavor read Education for Life; Jarvis Bay; Paris Incident; The Silent Women; A Report on the State of the Nation; So Long, Son; The Bishop of Munster. Almost all honest emotions are tapped. And a reappraisal of the material, in written form, confirms one's realization that here is a new type of dramatic writing that stands at the top of creative work in literature today.
