The Good Word and Other Words, by Wilfrid Sheed. New York: Penguin. $3.95.

Sheed is the master of a lucid hybrid that is book review, essay, and social commentary rolled into one. He takes the art of reviewing beyond the dimension of a single book to a concern for how authors' works relate to one another and to the social milieu that produced them.
