THURSDAY, MAY 28, 1942 ULYTHEVILL13 (ARK.) CUIJIUFJI NEWS Author Of "Kings Row" Repeats; More Worthy New Books Listed Fewer eyebrows will rise and less shush-shush will greet Henry Bel- lamann's. new book, "Floods of Spring" (Simon and Schuster: $2.50), than greeted hit- .successful "Kings Row," but it is every bit as fine a novel. And if anything, the characters—there are fewer major ones- are cut more clearly. David Kellring Ilee.s the .smugness of his early life for the same vicinity in which "Kings Row" took place to achieve what he thinks will be real independence. He becomes a rich fanner but has only one friend. He loses his family— *• two by death— refusal to bo human. And the same stubborn refusal to accept reality almost results in the loss of his life and soul. The story rolls on with the uncontrollable surging and backlash | s j ie of the river upon whose bank 1 '- •• David, surely one of the greatest figures in recent, fiction, plants his farm. Well knit and well written, "Floods of Spring," should be well received.

It is the story of a woman, poorly adjusted to her New England family, and how sought release in love. The of this love, and the processes and people who helped hei regain life, complete the story. A first novel of unusual distinction is "The Company She Keeps' (Simon and Schuster: $2.50), bj Mary McCarthy, less a novel than a series of portraits of a woman who may or may not have known what she wanted. Five chapteif portray her as she sees herself and is seen by others. The last floodlights the heroine in her entirety after an unnecessary divorce, a shoddy job and other loves. * * » If you have a Tory in your kitchen, give her or him a copy of "How to Cook a Wolf" (Dueil, Sloan & Pearce: 52.50), by M. F. K. Fisher. He or she will boil and there's a chapter on how to boil water. If there was ever an unorthodox cookbook, this is it. In the first place, anybody who like.s to eat should enjoy reading it, for it has more wise wisecracks than there are kinds p of hash. Miss Fisher holds that cooks should balance the day, not each meal, so let them eat starches—all they want—for breakfast, meat and more meat for lunch, and a gentle gorge of salads and dessert at night. She also tells what and how to eat in an air raid shelter. bllity and made good grades. He ouldn't get a leave from his job o write this book, but the pub- ishers were so impressed they advanced him money. They made \o mistake. • • * Unwilling to add just another ravel book to that overcrowded helf, Rose and Bob Brown take their readers on a genuinely exciting voyage in "Amazing Ama,on" (Modern Age: $3). Everybody knows the Amazon is the world's greatest river, but the Browns prove it. You can see animals, plants and people of the Amazon in this book which geography textbook writers would do well to emulate.

Kcntuckians will weep no more. unless they ar« far from the bluegrass, when they read "Weep No More My Lady" (Whittlesey House: $3.50). and citizens of other states should find reason to cheer. The author. Alvin E. Harlow. takes his Kentucky straight and it is plenty potent. Horses and huntiim, legends and liars, feuds and fights are mixed into a literary mint julep which. make this volume a mark at which future chroniclers of their states mast aim. Hal Steed hits that bull's-eye vith "Georgia: Unfinished State" Knopf: $3.50), entertaining as a Brooklyn ball game and quite in- ormative for those who believe Scarlett O'Hara was the Pencil Tree state's most famous citizen. Some of the best chapters are on the real Tobacco Road citizens. and the Callus-snapping Georgia ovcrnor. Gene Talmadge. COURAGE is the autobiography BLIND Here is the autobiography of a blind man. That isn't so unusual, but this blind man didn't lose his sense of humor or courage or good sense while losing his sight. He is Karsten Ohnstad. and his "The World at My Fingei Tips" (Bobbs-Merrill: $3) is as entertaining and fine a book as you are likely to read this year. Blind at 16.
