New edition of Gil Orlovitz's 1967 experimental novel. Cover design by the author's son, Ethan Orlovitz.
"Not since Joyce has anyone used words with such magnanimous clarity.... This book is one of the great, if not the greatest, literary achievements of our time."
Cork Examiner (UK)
"Milkbottle H is a great book, an experimental novel-into-poem. For anyone interested in the widening possibilities of the modern novel, or in gaining insight into a tragicomic human experience, the reward is immense."
London Tribune (UK)
"A major work of fiction by any standards. It has a breadth and intricacy of vision, an audacity of technique, and an unwearying energy of expression that put it in the very front rank. Milkbottle H is a major event in the history of the American imagination."
The Scotsman (UK)
"A new genre that no longer experiments with form but discards all form and concentrates on the presentation of immediately felt experience or, more accurately, allows that experience to present itself."
