In Youth Is Pleasure: & I Left My Grandfather's House

'“Beauty goes hand in hand with terror, formal elegance with informal brutality, the archaic with the modern.” —The New York Times Book Review   “When asked what writer has most directly influenced my own work I can answer without hesitation: Denton Welch.” —William S. Burroughs   “So precious, so beyond gay, so deliciously subversive, [it] is enough to make illiteracy a worse social crime than hunger. Maybe there is no better novel in the world than Denton Welch’s In Youth Is Pleasure.” —John Waters   “Delicacy of perception is precisely the same thing as delicacy of description. Denton Welch is like a British baby Proust in his astounding grasp of his own (usually ‘mundane’) experience. Nothing much happens in his books but the most wonderful writing.” —Richard Hell'
