“The author made a reputation as a humorous short story writer in a series that originally appeared in the Sydney “Bulletin.”
In this, his first full-length novel, Mr. Bleeck shows that he is capable of sustained work in the most difficult of all forms of fiction – namely humour.
Everybody’s Crazy” is wildly extravagant; but after you have read it and laughed at it, ask yourself whether the author has not succeeded in shrewdly satirising Sydney “Society” as well as telling an exciting story.”
