"The rich fabric of her writing"

Miss Kennelly’s memory for details, both personal and factual, contributes to the rich fabric of her writing. She achieves an effect so realistic that the New York Times has said that her characters “all but march off the pages”; and so appealing that, as the Saturday Review of Literature has pointed out, “No one who reads (Ardyth Kennelly) can resist the temptation of reading aloud some of the passages that are sheer delight.”
     --From the back cover of Kennelly's novel Marry Me, Carry Me (1956)
