THE BOOK CORNER
Reading From Left To Right
FRANCES GILBERT FRAZIER
Now that we are settled in the
peace that follows the hectic and
tearful days of the past five vears.
there are many of us who will want
to learn the details and inside
facts of incidents that were only
sketchedly touched upon by news
paper reports. It was impossible
for the reporters at those times
to go ueeply into specific data so
it makes a book like "MANY A
WATCHFUL NIGHT", by John
Mason Brown, of great interest at
No one could be better qual
ified to give this Information
than John Mason Brown, lieu
tenant in the United States
Navy. He was in the Nor
mandy invasion as well as the
Sicilian, where both times he
served as a lieutenant on the
staff of Viee-Admiral Alan G.
Kirk, USN, and was in a posi
tion to gather material for this

count of the war's impact as seen

eral Bradley make this book so
real that the reader can visualize
the actual 'happenings. This is a
hook that every man, young or old.
will want to read and keep.
To the admirers of Alexan
der Woollimtt and they are
legion the new book "A
WOOLLCOTT: II IS L1FK AND
HIS WORLD" by one of Amer
ica's best known authors, Sam
uel Hopkins Adams, will be a
revelation, a pleasure and
something to keep in their li
brary. Almost every radio listener re
members "The Town Crier" and
the familiar salutation "Woollcotl
speaking." Kvery word he uttered
was coated with interest, and many
of his sentences were so heavily
encrusted with satire and cynicism
that the listener moved away
but always returned to hear more.
Samuel Hopkins Adams has
spared no one's feeling in his
book about Woollrott and it
makes interesting reading,
whether you liked the man or
in's "THE GHEEN YEARS" now
as we did when its first release
was given to a waiting public. Dr.
Cronin's novels are so well and
favorably known that any book
under his signature would be
"THE GEEN YEARS" is
well worth the waiting for and
follows the success of his for
mer popular books, such as
"THE KEYS OF THE KING
DOM" and "THE CITADEL".
It is the story of young Rob
ert Shannon, striving against
the heaviest odds to salvage
his own soul. Then, too, there
is old Cadger Gow, the irre
sponsible, amorous, boasting,
penniless great - grandfather,
who comes through in a most
uprising fashion as the story
rounds out. Somehow, you lay
the book down after, you have
finished the last line and draw
a sigh of contentment. You
feel that you have absorbed
that same spirit which invaded
Robert Shannon's soul when
he slipped into the Holy An
