—The New York Times
“Lunatic humor. . . Zany, offbeat, and illustrated by his grotesque and spidery pen. It jolts the reader into gusts of laughter.”
“Fascinating. . . It goes down like pure whimsy and then back-kicks like a sick mule.”
—The Sunday Times
“Lennon's marvelously clever In His Own Write was the surprise literary sensation of 1964....you get Lennon's biting humor and brilliant puns: Lewis Carroll as rock star.”

I loved it then, it introduced me to fun for the fun of it with a mad literary bent.
Later, in college, I read Ulysses and that filled in the circle.
From pure imagination to pure recognition flowing together in a single purpose; To say what the hell is going on here????
I got this book to introduce my sons to the joy of confusion, and while the books do not seem quite as crazy as they seemed back then, it's still a brilliant cracking of normalcy and a sad reminder of the great loss of imagination silenced.
