Shooks -of the Day w

Her Knight Com4s Riding by John
V. A. Weaver. Alfred A. Xynopf.
John V. A. Weaver in his novel,
"Her Knight Comes Riding," uses with
insight a type of writing different
from the poetry for wlhich he is well
known. The burly language of Fred,
the heroine's brother, the crude gift
of George to his fiancee and the radio
scene grinding forth its prosaic an-
nouncements in the last scene make
the book seem like modern realism.
The story and its people are sur-
prisingly like life.
Existence in the metropolitan flat
where Mrs. Andrews slams and push-
es about to the discomfort of all, re-
veals the slaving side of marriage.
Her husband, once a fine chap, now
irritates her till sihe breaks out with
an itch of mean words to him every
time he enters'the house. The chil-
dren take this atmosphere with dif-
ferent attitude's: Fred becomes hard,
and Fanny turns to dreams for her
pleasure. Her abnormal life in high
school brightens her romantic dreams
for she doesn't go with any of those
"fresh guys." This state of being sep-
arated from the male element of man-
kind ends when she meets George.
His affectionate term for her, 'Baby,'
reflects how he deals with his new
friend. Fanny dotes on his fondling,
and the romance of the situation for
both of them dims the lights of real-
ity until they feel they are in heav-
en. The tedium of the office where
Fanny types, is lessened by antici-
pation of th evening walks in the
park and George's romantic instincts.
are stimulated by the thought of set-
tling down after roving the world
with the Marines.
The seduction incident with Mr.
Magnus, after George has gone to
war makes the pot of interest in Fan-
nyrpercolate for the next few chap-
ters. The choice of material for the
remaining part of the story keeps
the interest at the same fairly high
level set at the commencement of the
John V. A. Weaver, former news-
paper man on the book staff of the
Chicago Daily News and then Liter-
ary aditor of the Brooklyn Daily

Eagle, writes with the understand-
ing of an experienced person. His
vision of the lives of his characters
penetrates to the essential values in
their-make-uwp. His taste in select-
ion is actually in the heart of man
shows splendid judgment as well as
knowledge of psychology. The reader
feels that real people are discussed
when th, Iast page of the book has
been turned.
