living nutuers writing in the Kngli.su

The story starts with Shane Camp

sailermen call it. In time he becomes
master of bis own trading bhip and the
story of his jeumcylngs and the lands
and peoples he comes te knew Is full of
the meA bewildering richness and color.
However, the real theme lies deeper
than mere surface enchantment. "In
his boyhood he had known the wonder
of life. In youth he had known there
existed sordid tragedy. In young man

Is a poignant beauty in the adventures

and admirably succeeds in his effort te
"capture the elusive, unbearable nehe
that is the mainspring of humanity."
Terhaps because he writes net only

And here Mr. Livcright is net over

In ninny respects Mr. Grew has

A BACHELOR'S JOB
Ferman In 'The Man Who Lived
in a Shee' Telia Hew He
Rese te It
Transformation of a rather dreamy
and colorless life, thnt of a bachelor
scholar and bibliophile, into one of
vivid realization of personal responsi
bility and the imperative need of
mingling in the affairs et the world,
gives Henry James Ferman oppor
tunity for the telling of a whimsical
story, which he docs in a delightfully
whimsical manner in a novel he calls
"The Man Who Lived in a Shoe"
(Little, Brown & Ce.)
In autegraphical form, that is, In
n sort of intermittent diary, Randelph
Byrd, literary recluse, narrates the up--set
caused lnhls sclf-ccntcred exist
ence by bis only sister's death. The
iiruntlen of the lattcr's three little
children, two boys and a girl, Inte his
apartments, is the' cause of the meta
morphosis of an erudite young book
work into a real human being nnd one
whose inborn romantic nature is fully,
theush nt first unconsciously, devel
eped through contact with the little
mowers nciper suppuea 10 me
harassed young bachelor by an orphans'
That's where the romance begins. It
would be unfair te the render te tell
in advance Jist hew it ends. The
"villain" part of this charming life
drama is supplied by the husband of
the schelnr's bister, who, having de
serted her sevcrnl yenrs before the be
ginning of the story, returns Just in
time te make trouble in the household
of the transformed bookworm and also
te prove the mettle of the man sud
denly catapulted from the snug com
panienship of his beloved volumes inf
tne pest or overseeing ana canng ier
bis infant nephews and niece and their
scarcely elder "mother's helper."
Randelph Byrd's first essay into the
DusmesH world is net n snming success,
but he has n certain obstinacy of tem
perament, for all his erudition, thnt will
plensc the red-blooded men renders of
"The Man Who Lived in a Shee," and
at the same time win the approbation of
women who delight in Just the sort of
ebstlnncy that is an outstanding feature
of the character of Mr. Ferman's en
gaging, if whimsical, here.
THE SPEAKABLE TURK
Zia Bey Says Something in
"Speaking of the Turks"
Few voices, cither of interest or au
thority, have been raised te give the
"lde of the Turk In the Near Knst
maelstrom. Therefore the Unspeakable
Turk has become a fixed figure in the
general mind. It is the Otteman's side
of his home life, of his ideals and of
what he terms his persecution by Chris
tinn peoples, thnt Mufty-Znde K. Zia
Bey has written in "Speaking of the
Turks" (Dufflcld Company).
This Turk, the son of a former Turk
ish Ambassador te the Court of St.
James, appenrs rather in the role of a
protagonist than of n propagandist.
His little volume would be noteworthy
as a striking picture of Oriental life,
even with the accepted motive, one
which Zia Bey makes no effort te con
ceal. Ills argument is that the Turks
are net ns block as they have been
painted ; thnt much of the gqre of mas
sacres has been manufactured by self
seeking relief workers nnd thnt as far
as relief Itself gees, the Turks have
been permitted te suffer misery untold
without aid, even as compared te the
admitted tribulations of the Greeks nnd
Fer the Greeks, Armenians nnd
Levantines, Zia Bey has little or no
use. His premise is that the Turks
want te mnke progress, that thev are
grndually accepting "westernization,"
but thnt it must be grndual and net
enforced. However, little of political
argumentation mnrks the book and
there its' chief beauty lies.
The author unrratics his return te
Constantinople, after two j ears' ab
sence, with his bride, nn American girl
from New Orleans. He pictures the
beauty of Constantinople ns it was re
vealed te him and shown te her for
the first time. Te Stnmbeul, te Pera,
at Ercnkuey they go and the home life
of the high caste Turk is revealed.
The harem is shown, net as a place of
debauchery but as the real gatherinp
nlnee of the fumily clan.
The Turk Is certainly net lily white.
But he deserves a hearing and he hardly
could find a mere nersunslve or inter
esting minstrel than this author. Inci
dentally Zia Bey makes n plea for tome
