Clearly a book read from cover to cover. The usual marginal notes begin on the title-page: 'Should be made a Saint. Why not? ALR. He killed himself for religion's sake.' Highlights include: 'Ordny [sic] BFs have no idea of genius = an intense clarity', 'H.H. [the editor] was a hetero and wdn't undstand' and 'MASO Chist'!
