Before Lunch

ByAngela ThirkellKNOPF
AN amusing, witty, and pleasant novel of corelated English families living in an atmosphere of mutual awareness, physical ease, and mild emotional maladjustments. It is very good reading&emdash ‘pleasant,’ again, is the word for Before Lunch; it has a charm, that settled English charm which seemed so firmly enshrined in the lives of the better classes and which the monstrous tact of war has pushed backward into limbo. If you can spare time from your radio, blaring forth catastrophe, read this engaging story of civilized human beings who lived only yesterday in a happier world.
