Bailed out on: "The Enormous Room" by E.E. Cummings

Bailed out on: The Enormous Room by E.E. Cummings

I saw a reference to this somewhere and Watertown PL had it. I read the foreword which briefly told the whole story. Cummings writing is too much of the happy chums on a lark type writing of English schoolboys. Since I got the précis from the foreword I quit reading.

Basically, Cummings graduated college and went to France to be an ambulance driver during WWI. His best pal in France was suspected by the Frogs of being anti-French and they both got thrown in prison.
