Reviews

Grand to see this new rendition of a work full of what life is all about and translated with an equal authenticity.--J. P. Donleavy
Raffel has done the impossible. . . . [He] has produced a text which is amazingly true to the meaning and the linguistic gusto of the original.--Alain Renoir
[Raffel] has provided us with a classic work, restored to its original complexity, humor, and gusto.
