Abstract:

"Perdurabo traces Aleister Crowley's remarkable journey from his birth as the only son of a wealthy lay preacher to his death in a boarding house as one of the most notorious men of his day. Crowley, a tireless magician, prophet, poet, and adventurer, has inspired generations of social and spiritual truth-seekers and has shaped modern popular culture through his philosophy of "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law." Taking an even handed and accessible approach to an extremely controversial figure, author Richard Kaczynski draws from his extensive academic expertise with the subject matter to present Crowley's story in a way that is unmatched to any other biographer.
