About the Author

Anglo-Irish author Jonathan Swift was born in Dublin on November 20, 1667. He was best known for his political satire in pieces such as A Modest Proposal and Gulliver's Travels. After spending his youth in London, he returned to Dublin to serve as the Dean of St. Patrick's Cathedral. He died on October 19, 1745.

Pamela Garelick was born in England. She acted in fringe theater there before coming to the United States, where she has worked as a voice-over artist in television and radio and as an audiobook narrator. Now living and working in Greece, she records, translates, and edits voice-overs from all over the world as well as narrating audiobooks in a small studio in her Mediterranean garden. She also paints silk clothing, bakes for the local cafes, and teaches newcomers the Greek language.

Reviews

"A masterwork of irony...that contains both a dark and bitter meaning and a joyous, extraordinary creativity of imagination. That's why it has lived for so long.

-- "Malcolm Bradbury, author of The History Man"

"One of the masterpieces of satire among the world's literature."

-- "Masterpieces of World Literature"

"A multifarious book, it is various in its appeal: it is enchantingly playful and fantastic and is often read by children; it is a witty, allegorical depiction of the political life and values of Swift's time; it is a bitter denunciation of mankind; finally it is Swift's reflections on man's corruption of his highest attribute, reason."

-- "The Reader's Encyclopedia"

Here is a book come out, that all our people of taste run mad about...and very wonderful it is.

-- "Lady Mary Wortley Montagu "
