ABSTRACT
This article presents information about the book "Don't Go Near the Water," by William Brinkley. Brinkley's novel is a model of literary efficiency. At a single stroke, he has dispensed with most of the troublesome problems of creation. Brinkley has taken full advantage of these labor-saving devices to observe the strictest economy in the use of his own talent. Even in the dialogue, there are passages which appear to owe their existence less to the author than to "1000 Jokes for All Occasions."
