Taken from a book review by Noel Perrin, in The Washington Post 1983 : " Cabell is not everyone's dish of tea. The sexual inuendo that that seemed so daring in 1926 is not going to give so many little delightful shocks and delight now. But there really is tea in the cup : a smoky and sophisticated Lapsang souchong. People who delight in polish and poise and wit, who like to see an absolute master of invention, wil like The Silver Stallion."
