Editorial Reviews

Boston Globe
Prodigious, ingenious...The imaginative dimensions of this [book] are altogether extraordinary.
Jerusalem Post
The recent publication of this "lost notebook" of T.S. Eliot's early poems is surely one of the literary events of our era....Probably only the discovery of a cache of sonnets by a youthful Shakespeare could excite literary scholars more.
