Reviews

Praise for Rondo

"Kazmierz Brandys is one of the major Polish novelists of the postwar period...Rondo [is] packed with penetrating wisdom and worldly experience...Those adventurous American readers willing to try this novel by a masterful, relatively unknown foreign author will discover that Brandys has done the impossible."
--Phillip Lopate, The New York Times Book Review

"May prove impossible to forget."
--Library Journal

"A challenging but politically and morally astute take on the emotional impact of war."
--Kirkus Reviews

"If in the next centuries the world is still inhabited by civilized men, Rondo is one of the novels that will be most cherished and appreciated."
--Corriere della Sera (Italy)

"In this polyphonic novel, many voices join in a dramatic choir that embraces both the past and the future, the apparent and the authentic, theater and history."
--Le Figaro (France)
