Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 4 March 30, 1938



Just as unemployment seems certain he unearths and marries an attractive and wholly desirable young woman with a Hat or her own and £300 a year!

Not so fortunate his sister, who Is mated, by a devoted mammy, to a beery baronet, as rich as a pin is fat, and who like Mr. Hemmingway, goes shooting among the "Green Hills of Africa." Her rewards are squalor, pregnancy and syphilis—all from her husband.

Mr. Aldington develops these situations clear-heatedly and without any side-stepping of individual issues. The book stands as a forceful, piercing denunciation of the values of capitalist England. So far so good.
