Gerda Charles writes with great directness and force and with a sharp, ironic insight into character. She does not sentimentalize nor is she concerned to produce a finished, static work of art. What she does is to set down nakedly, and with a kind of angry pity, all the loneliness and frustration of the outsider struggling to break in. There are many people whom this book will stir very deeply.
