“Taylor Gordon somehow got himself on paper, lanky six-feet, falsetto voice, molasses laugh, and all the rest of him, including a brain that functions and an eye that can see. The result is probably a ‘human document’ of the first order, to be studied by sociologists and Freudians for years to come. . . . [And] it is an extremely amusing book.”—Carl Van Vechten in his foreword
