  • 'A frighteningly good memoir'

    London Review of Books
  • 'Wollheim's powers of description astound...Because of the intensity with which a remarkable man has offered us a view of his inner self, I doubt whether anyone who has read it will forget it'

    Literary Review
  • 'Germs is not only elegantly written; it is a human document of considerable power and importance'

  • 'Pungently truthful, complex and original'

  • 'A masterpiece - an unclassifiable work of startling originality in which the acutely sensual and confusedly cerebral experience of infancy, boyhood and adolescence is brilliantly recreated'
