"In Held's Angels, Frank B. Gilbreth, Jr., coauthor of Cheaper by the Dozen and Belles on Their Toes, etc. has teamed up with Mr. Held to re-create the flavor of those merry days before the Depression and World War II, when bathtub gin and hip flasks were de rigueur and coonskin coats and bare knees become compulsory collegiate fashions."
