"When The Mountain Fell,"
by Charles Ferdinand Ramuz,
"is the last book of a great
Swiss novelist who died this
year and whose work un-
fortunately has been little
known to American readers.
It's central incident is thrilling
and its surprise constant, but
the most lasting impression,
Dorothy Canfield points out, is
that you feel you have been
lifted to a higher plane. You
are confident of the worth and
endurance of the human soul."

"Zoltz!," by Walter Karig, is
"a wholly delightful and
amazing book," reports John
Marquant. "If you have found
nothing to laugh at in these
grim days, you will find it in
'Zoltz!' It's about a quiet,

tries vainly to contribute this
soul-shaking discovery to the
war effort, and you will
chuckle to the last period

grand scale, who will take his
place among the most mem-
orable characters in American

tinsel and the show inside the
tent were always more real and
important than the world out-
side it. His reality rode in a
gilt-and-red wagon, and the
elephant was its symbol. The
essential tragedy of his life
— that his biggest goals and
greatest loves remained out of
reach or slipped through his
hands — seldom occurred to
A river becomes crooked
