Free from the too common trick of embellishing actuality with traditional cant, this author wins the intelligent reader through a sympathetic cynicism denoting experience and honesty, the whole expressing itself in most humorous form. Shopgirls and bartenders and pseudo-Bohemians and "that sad company of mariners known as Jersey commuters"-such types are hit off with immense cleverness.
