Reviews
PRAISE FOR THE THIEF'S JOURNAL

"One of the strongest and most vital accounts of a life ever set down on paper . . . Genet has dramatized the story of his own life with a power and vision which take the breath away . . . [he is] one of the most daring literary figures of all time." --New York Post

"Genet is one of those creatures who sum up or express the potentialities of an entire species or form even as its life is passing from it . . . one of the most striking things about Genet's work, and especially The Thief's Journal, is the consciousness with which it is suffused." --Steven Marcus, New York Review of Books

"Only a handful of twentieth-century writers, such as Kafka and Proust, have as important, as authoritative, as irrevocable a voice and style." --Susan Sontag
