“The Visible Man
is Henri Cole’s most brutal and despairing book . . .The break with the properties of Cole’s earlier style, the invention of a self so harrowing in character, will remind readers of the confessions in Robert Lowell’s Life Studies, published 40 years ago. . . . most other books would be reduced to ashes by the comparison."
