"A work, splendid in observation, marvelous in the artistry of exclusion, yet of democratic inclusiveness, piercingly analytic of character, of plastic fictility of handling, sympathetic underneath irony, humorous, pathetic, tragic, comic, particular yet universal, --a Comedie Humaine-- of a whole community of personalities." William Reedy; from the front peice of the 1st Edition.
