The most blackly humorous and disenchanted voice in all of French literature.--John Sturrock
Teeming with disease, misanthropy, and dark comedy.
An extraordinarily gifted writer, he writes like a lunging live wire, crackling and wayward, full of hidden danger.--Alfred Kazin
Terrifying: enormously powerful and slashing, satiric, misanthropic--but what power of the imagination!--James Laughlin
One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. It could be said that without Céline there would have been no Henry Miller, no Jack Kerouac, no Charles Bukowski.--John Banville
This is the novel, perhaps more than any other, that inspired me to write fiction. Céline showed me that it was possible to convey things that had heretofore seemed inaccessible.--Will Self
