“His rueful irony, his playful sadness, his flavored melancholy, whatever it is that makes him unique among modern American novelists, has never shown to better advantage than in this gentle story of the depression. ‘One More Spring’ is unique in the literature of the social conscience; it achieves all the values of the human document that does not blink the harsh facts, yet it does so without taking leave of fantasy and imagination.”
