"The book crackles with intellectual energy…Most important, it fills out the picture of what and who Johnson was: a brilliant, uncontainable polymath, an artist-poet, the genuine item…Any conclusions drawn about Johnson’s psychology from his writing must be provisional…If there’s a lot we can’t know, that’s O.K. Mystery is part of his beauty and his lastingness.”
