The current issue of the New York Review of Books contains a the first part of a lengthy article by Frederick Crews, "The Consolation of Theosophy." It is a favorable review of Peter Washington's Madame Blavatsky's Baboon, as well as an opinion piece on esotericism in general (he's agin it.) I get praised a little and attacked more, portrayed as "pious" and "deferential" toward HPB (tell it to any of a dozen mean Theosophists!). I have sent in a response. If anyone wants to see what Crews writes about me and my reply, I'll forward it you. Defending myself against the charge of being a true believer Theosophist was easy and fun.
