Ticker Khan

SHORT REVIEWS

by Phoebe Adams

by Bamber Gascoigne. Simon and Schuster, $3.95. Bamber Khan’s tale of his friend Ticker is camouflage for a witty examination of certain theological problems. The Khans are birds, pheasant, to be precise, but this terse, irreverent novel is hardly for the J. Seagull flock. Illustrations by Pauline Martin.
