Review: Banana BottomAvis de journaliste - Kirkus Reviews
A third-rate book, which would have no recognition had the author not happened to be a Negro, with at least one moderate success to his credit.

The conflict between her training and her instincts is told in flowery style, tinged with Hollywood diction.
