Editorial Reviews

George Stade
Some 20 characters are caught in the turns and baffles of Mr. Dunne's mazy plot....You won't have any trouble telling these many characters apart. They're a vivid bunch, these wits and butts, each in his own way. Each has his own manner of speaking. And the talk, as in everything Mr. Dunne writes, is music to the ear and truer than true to life - and a good thing, too. If we spoke like Mr. Dunne's characters, we would reveal ourselves entirely. -- New York Times
