The formula of the mouse-like man (a commuter, of course), bored with his job and his wife, and unaware that the world contains anything more interesting, is probably as old as the organization of society and the division of labor; but Mr. Locke gives it some new twists. The fortune that suddenly descends on Theophilus Bird is only the beginning of his emancipation; it takes much hard luck, a trip around the world, a couple of mistresses, and the eventual resignation of the fortune to enable him to enter into his kingdom.--Excerpt from review appearing in THE SATURDAY REVIEW OF LITERATURE, OCTOBER 1, 1927.
