The perhaps unusual friendship of two contemporary major literary intellectuals is examined in wonderful detail by their mutual acquaintance, Miguel Serrano, the author of this book. Anyone who is a fan of Hermann Hesse will enjoy seeing the real Hesse through the eyes of Serrano who was a friend and frequent visitor at the Hesse home until the time of his death. The fact that Hesse and Jung knew each other and discussed the meaning of life and spirituality adds an element to this story that will deepen any reader's understanding of both of these great thinkers. The book is easy to read and fascinating and it may not be an exaggeration to say that this book bears some historical significance because of the impact Hesse and Jung had on human culture, particularly during the generation that came of age in the late 1960s & 1970s.
