PERSISTENT FACES by William Steig

PERSISTENT FACES

Email this review

KIRKUS REVIEW

Companion volume to The Lonely Ones, which since publication in '42 has been reprinted 12 times. This has more bite -- more cynicism -- but Steig is almost never cruel, which he might so easily be in these X-rays of humanities, oddities encountered in the daily round. Each grotesque sketch conveys an impression, sometimes swiftly caught, sometimes symbolic, of a type, a quirk, a mood. Here's a book for those who are bothered by too much text. You don't have to read this.
