Writing with all the wit, the magic, and the rich evocative spell of Tomorrow and Tomorrow, Holiday and Paris Bound, Mr. Barry presents the story of a man and two marriages, one with benefit of clergy. It is the romance of an unusual man's attempt to adjust himself to the modern world, told with Barry's sure command of the mood and pace of the American scene. Tom Collier belongs to that small but important group of men whose pattern is never the pattern of the age; he is an unconscious artist, a non-conformist at heart, who could not be what is known as "a good citizen," no matter how hard he tried. Confused by our common animal heritage, he looked upon the two women in his life, and found it difficult to discover which was the wife and which the mistress. Sparkling, fine-tempered dialogue and high comedy.
