She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not

Parris, Robert

New Republic;5/30/55, Vol. 132 Issue 22, p21
The article presents information about the book "A Ghost at Noon," by Alberto Moravia. In the basic lines of its subject matter, its success depends largely on the patience and compassion of the reader. Its details, however, are expertly handled, and as in Moravia's other books, it's the psychological picture-painting and the intense realism of both scenic description and dialogue which are remarkable. With all these reservations, A Ghost at Noon is a valuable piece of work if only because its author knows exactly what he has to say, and has all the technique to say it clearly and simply.
