With this particular book I attribute some degree of salvation. Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not trying to tell you this is a great book. I’m not sure there is such a thing, and if there is, I’m not sure I’d argue this is one of them. But I am saying it’s a pivotal book–both for me, and, in a way, for you.

Kenneth Patchen

20th Century American Poet

With this particular book I attribute some degree of salvation. Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not trying to tell you this is a great book. I’m not sure there is such a thing, and if there is, I’m not sure I’d argue this is one of them. But I am saying it’s a pivotal book–both for me, and, in a way, for you.

—J.C. Hallman, Tin House

This novel is quite possibly the book that made the biggest impression on me, ever.

—Michael Berger, The Rumpus

The Journal of Albion Moonlight is a work of unmistakable genius; in all of English literature it stands alone. Albion Moonlight is the most naked figure of a man I have encountered in all literature.

—Henry Miller
