The article reports on various books. Some of them are: "Men Like Shadows," by Dorothy Chars; "The Marriage of Elizabeth Whitacker, by Jacobine Hichens; "Hotel Talleyrand," by Paul Hyde; "Simple Takes a Wife," by Langston Hughes; "Not Heaven," by Waldo Frank. Among the pleasant and unimportant novels published this and every year, Dorothy Charques' Men Like Shadows and Jacobine Hichens' The Marriage of Elizabeth Whitacker deserve a high place. Jacobine Hichens' The Marriage of Elizabeth Whitacker is a sensible and expert novel about an Anglican and a Catholic who fall in love in modern times. Paul Hyde Dormer's Hotel Taileyrand gives you the same agreeable feeling of having been there you get from Mrs. Charques' novel about the Third Catsade and is a good deal less realistic than Jacobine Hichen's story of a marriage.
