About the Author

One of the most famous French writers of the nineteenth century, Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) first achieved success in the literary world a playwright, before turning his hand to writing novels. In two years from 1844 to 1845, he published two enormous books, The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. Both novels have sold millions of copies worldwide. Lawrence Ellsworth is the pen name of Lawrence Schick.

Lawrence was born in the United States and now lives in Dublin.

Reviews

"Newly translated, this sequel to The Three Musketeers is as fresh as ever. In Lawrence Ellsworth's excellent, compulsively readable translation. Dumas never stints the action, witty dialogue and surprising plot developments." --Michael Dirda "The Washington Post"
"Sparkles and shines. Races along with pointed humor and broad quips. Fun permeates this big book. The rest of this year's fiction will have to look sharp: An old master has just set the bar very, very high."--Michael Dirda "Christian Science Monitor"
"The test of a translator is his capacity to capture this characteristic interplay of the heroic and the ribald; the sincere and the ironic; the vanished past and the approaching present. And at this task Ellsworth succeeds, giving us a Three Musketeers with more clarity, energy, and simplicity than any previous English edition."--Michael Dirda "Open Letters Review"
"Dumas's trademark gifts at crafting engaging historical romances are amply in evidence in this lengthy yet fast-paced volume. Ellsworth's translation captures a complete narrative. A very entertaining epic."--Michael Dirda "Publishers Weekly (starred)"
"A royal treat for fans of historical fiction. I am confident that librarians and English literature teachers around the world are leaping for joy at the publication of The Red Sphinx, and I join them in this excitement."--Michael Dirda "Bookreporter"
"Fans of The Three Musketeers can rejoice in the 800-page English translation of this largely forgotten sequel."--Michael Dirda "Newsday"
