After years of underground existence, this brilliant novel is emerging as a classic of visionary writing and still remains Hawkess only work devoted solely to American life. As a surrealist Western (Newsweek), and a violent and poetic portrayal of a landscape of sexual apathy (Albert J. Guerard), The Beetle Leg is a rich flight into the special vein of comedy that Hawkes had begun to exploit a decade before the popular acceptance of black humor.
