US Kirkus Review » A sort of literary history of the generation Gertrude Stein calls "the lost generation" - the men and women who should have taken their place in life between 1916 and 1922. Hemingway, Kay Boyle, E. E. Cummings, John Dos Passos, Scott Fitzgerald, and many others are shown in their relation to the time and its effect upon them, from the literary standpoint rather than the personal and individual. A sort of "March of Time" account of the experiences these young hopefuls encountered, their thoughts, the struggles, their illusions, their disintegration through lack of fundamental convictions. There's a certain hysterical tempo in the telling, the material is ably handled; but the market is distinctly an intellectual one. (Kirkus Reviews)
