Reviews

"An expert piece of comic writing.... A tightly packed duologue rings the changes on three aspects of American conformity-- salesmanship, evangelism, and physical culture. All are concerned ... with salvation-- so what is more natural than to fuse them together? Mr. Bermel does so with the all too plausible invention of a New York spiritual gymnasium.... Taut, witty, and without a single dead line.... Extracts its comedy as much from physical action as from dialogue." - London Times
