QuotationIt would not be true to say I got mad reading the review of Huxley's new book Gray Eminence in Time... I don't know what to do except pray for Huxley and for the stupid, sly, crafty, pedantic little life-smurching mental dwarf that wrote this review for Time. I am not mad at him, but still can't see straight when I think of the vices of his beastly, smug little review... What about Gray Eminence? The book is probably smarter than the Time review made it seem.
