"To encounter [Powys]... is to arrive at the very fount of creation. He makes us witnessof the consuming fire which rages throughout the universe entire and which gives not warmth nor enlightenment, but enduring vision, enduring strength, and enduring courage." -Henry Miller "This is a... great novel. It stands as a gigantic rebuke to a time of minimum-risk writers and readers, and I hope that many among them will be encouraged to attempt it." -The Chicago Tribune"
