HERMAN HESSE’S DER STEPPENWOLF, 1974…

September 7th, 2017

In high school I was fascinated by the works of Herman Hesse, so much so that I adopted, for a time, the adolescent nickname of Erich Von Hesse; hey I was 15. Steppenwolf was the first book of Hesse’s that I read, not because I knew of the author, but because his name was similar to mine and I was a fan of the rock group Steppenwolf

Hesse hooked me on page 37 of my Bantam paperback with Magic Theater, Entrance Not For Everyone and For Madmen Only! I clearly remember what I thought when I first read that line: sign me up.
