3 out of 5 stars

Biography of Crowley, aka The Great Beast, among other things – including Perdurabo, "I will endure".

While perhaps overly sympathetic, this biography has the great grace to be readable – which so many things are not. It is also well supported by evidence – the notes are complete and the bibliography impressive.

Presenting more the man than the beast, it might well do to be balanced against with a less sympathetic tome. It is, however, a good introduction to this incredibly influential figure, taking in not only his magic(k) but his relationships, mountain climbing, publishing and art work.

Level: One (or one and a bit…).
