    Review quote
    "There is nothing like Henry Miller when he gets rolling. . . . One has to take the language back to Marlowe and Shakespeare before encountering a wealth of imagery equal in intensity." -Norman Mailer "There is an eager vitality and exuberance to the writing . . . we watchfully hear the language skip, whoop and wheel across Miller's pages." --William H. Gass "The most enthralling and hilarious explosions are the sexual ones." --"Newsweek" "A superb entertainment that brings in jeremiads, casual lyrics, and sudden reaches toward the spiritual core of life . . ." --"The New York Times Book Review" "Miller has once and for all blasted away the very foundation of human hypocrisy--moral, social, and political. . . . The grandest passages are the scenes of lovemaking. They join in a grand paean to all that is still joyous, healthy, happy, and affirmative." --"The Nation" "American literature today begins and ends with the meaning of what Miller has done." -Lawrence Durell
