Read in July, 1974 — I own a copy , read count: 1

Hermann Hesse was one of the great favorites of my high school crowd, recommended to me first by some of the girls, Rachel and Betsy in particular. I started with Demian, then proceeded to pick up or borrow every novel I could, branching off into his nonfiction and spending a great deal of money at Stuart Brent Bookstore on Michigan Avenue for some of the more obscure titles.

By 1974 I'd read all of his major fiction. This review of his work was, in consequence, a pleasant trip down memory lane which raised to consciousness many of the devices of his art which had worked so effectively on me. Subsequently I went on to find and read a biography of the author.
