The War Between the Tates is a novel not only to read, but to reread for its cool and revealing mastery of a social epoch; something 'light and bright and sparkling,' in Reuben Brower's phrase for 'Pride and Prejudice'; a near-perfect comedy of manners and morals to put on the shelf nest to Vanity Fair or The Egoist.”
