Jan and Cora Gordon are excellent journalists. They live for

months—maybe for years—in a foreign country, and yet they always retain the capacity to observe interesting and amusing peculiarities of the inhabitants of whatever country they are living in. They never get into the minds of the people they are watching. In spite of their Bohemianism they give the impression of being very English when they are abroad, particularly so in their new book, Star•Dust on Hollywood (Harrap, 12s. 6d.). This book gives a vivid and entertaining picture of life in Hollywood, and considerable information about the making of American films. Jan and Cora Gordon are always delightful companions even in this peculiarly uncongenial setting.
