I wanted to read this book since I read an excerpt from it in 1967. It turns out
the excerpt was the best part of the novel. The rest is crap. The hero thinks he
has discovered the answer to life in the philosophy of Max Stirner. He walks around
London feeling sorry for the misery of the poor. He goes to radical meetings and
feels sorry for the benighted communists. He is a bleeding-heart egoist.
