"Srivastava offers an engaging assessment of Leslie Fiedler, who was heard by all with rapt attention--admired by some for opening new doors and reviled by others for his candor and for his bearhug embrace of culture, both high and low." --Amritjit Singh, Langston Hughes Professor of English, Ohio University
"The ideal scholar of Leslie Fiedler, who reveled in explicating otherness, would be another erudite outsider. Offering a personal assessment of Fiedler's enduring contributions, Prem Kumari Srivastava of the University of Delhi is that scholar." --Steven G. Kellman, University of Texas at San Antonio, Co-editor Leslie Fiedler and American Culture
"Leslie Fiedler heralded a revolution in literary criticism during the last half of the twentieth century. Srivastava shows us why his work continues to fire the critical imagination." --Ronald Strickland, Michigan Technological University
