"It was an accident that Alan Frith-Walter should have boarded the same train as his son and daughter-in-law; it was an accident that he should find them quarreling; and the track wreck itself was the climax to a series of accidents. Arnold Bennett, with urbanity and humor, has found in the train a microcosm -- 'a cargo of opulent beings of fleshly ideals and aspirings.' Out of this situation he has written a fine, slightly ironical, humorously tolerant story of human adjustments."
