"One of the greatest achievements of modern literature." -Richard Howard
"A major achievement . . . . Genet transforms experiences of degradation into spiritual exercises and hoodlums into bearers of the majesty of love." -Saturday Review
"This book recreates for the reader Genet's magic world, one of dazzling beauty charged with novelty and excitement." -Bettina Knapp
