Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A young Indian mystic, a contemporary of Buddha, sacrifices everything to search for the true meaning of life.


Review:

"[Henry Miller] asked me if I'd ever read Hermann Hesse. I hadn't, but I'd heard about him. Henry told me to read 'Siddhartha'. He had found a translation of it in England, and sent it to me. I read it, and thought, well, this is pretty sugar-candied Buddhism. And I said, 'Oh, gosh, Henry, do I have to?' And he said, 'Yes, you have to.' And so I did it. The first year the novel sold 400 copies. The next year it was about 800. But within 10 years it was selling a quarter of a million a year."

James Laughlin, Poets & Writers, May/June 1995

Review:

"The author's stringent, economical phrasing with its careful rhythms lends the book an air of studied antiquity, refreshing, yet, oddly, new."

Martin Buber
