From The New York Times, May 8, 1966.
The fine print:
"This is the story of an extraordinary young man of our time... an unforgettable vagabond of rebellion just as heroic and funny and offbeat and wise and sexy and daring and wild as the rest of his generation would like to be. He, too, has tried LSD, prayer, unbridled sex, demonology, science, even art. But he goes about it all with such sardonic humor, such gallant diabolism, such scorn for today and tomorrow that he takes on the dimension of a new kind of folk hero. His story rings true. For it is told by a young author who speaks with the voice of today's young rebels... who knows their secrets and their language... their gods and their demons... their courage and their fears... and who writes about them in a way that is as new and fresh and different as everythign they dared to do."

"It's a wild ramble of a novel", says Robert Gover, author of One Hundred Dollar Misunderstanding, "sometimes hilarious, sometimes horrifying, always on the move."
