"The closest thing to Dostoyevsky's Notes From Underground an American ever wrote."—The Nation

"A wonderful enterprise. Here, recovered, is Dreiser's first fal from the heights of Sister Carrie, and his standing up and his dusting himself off."—E. L. Doctorow, New York Times

"Dreiser's own fascinating account of his mental and spiritual crackup. . . . Certainly in all American literature there is no such moving personal account."—Chicago Tribune
