Review of The Natural Man in the journal of Sri Ramanashram in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, India - Mountain Path, June `95:

Larry Morris has given us a delightful collection of so-called poems (epiphanies would be a better description), about his relationship with that scourge of fossilized traditions of God-fearing seekers, viz. U.G. [U.G. Krishnamurti] himself, iconoclast extraordinaire and unabashed scoundrel, in short, a `useless guy'.

U.G. has the cunning knack which relieves you of your illusions with his implacable eye and not quite reputable behaviour. He does not respond to people's expectations of how he should respond. He is unique.

I come away from Larry's jottings with a chuckle and a glow. What he communicates so simply and with such insight is truer than any number of massive, turgid tomes. He is light, and dare one say, enlightening.
