Barritt writes in a dream; like William Burroughs, whose writing Barritt admires, the prose in 'Road to Excess' lifts off the page and the reader will see 'how things happen and are made to happen'.
To sum up, I reckon this to be an incredible book, beautifully written (in complete sobriety the prose got me high as a kite throughout), and full of great yarns.
[I recommend reading this alongside 'The Process' by Brion Gysin.]
PS: I've just discovered that Brian Barritt died since I read 'Road to Excess' in the last couple of months. Let us be glad he wrote this book to share a little of a life well lived in exploration.
