Reviews

"An artistic achievement." --The Washington Post

"One of the best novels of its kind. . . . It isn't sentimental, and it is frank without trying to be sensational and shocking." --Christopher Isherwood

"A brilliant exposé of subterranean life." --The Atlantic Monthly

"Frank, shocking . . . extremely sympathetic, penetrating and exhortive." --New York Herald Tribune
