"The life work of this proud, bitter, principled, generous man and the immeasurable service he has done on behalf of literature command respect and deserve attention." —Michael Lindgren, the Washington Post

"This is a top-notch production . . . terrific and eclectic." —Nathan Leslie, the Pedestal magazine
