Fiction: Recent Books: Mar. 30, 1936

MAIN LINE WEST—Paul Horgan—Harper ($2.50). Tale of a sporty drummer of horse-&-buggy days in the Midwest, of his wife and son who tried to do better. More ambitious than Author Horgan's prize-winning The Fault of Angels but not as entertaining.

THE HILL—Eleanor Green—Doubleday, Doran ($2). Very short first novel of a middle-class family seen through the searching eyes of one of them, a just-grown-up girl. A refreshing contrast to such books as Josephine Johnson's ornate Now in November, Pulitzer Prizewinner for 1935, The Hill is well written, but in prose.
