Hope out of France

Engle, Paul

New Republic;5/16/55, Vol. 132 Issue 20, p38
The article presents information about the book "The Seagull on the Step," by Kay Bole. Everything Boyle writes has fluency of prose and imaginativeness conception. This has more of both those qualities than some others of her books. The taste, smell and intonation of France are here, and along with them, a troubled concern for her own country. The book tells about an American girl, studying art in Paris while keeping an eye on her boy friend in the diplomatic service reads a letter in a newspaper from a Frenchman.
