Praise

ound a wealth of pleasure and a gold mine of enjoyment in it. . . . I swear to you, my friend, that it’s the best book of its kind in the world . . . the author deserved to have it kept in print all his life. Take it home and read it, and you’ll see everything I’ve said is true.”
—Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote
 
“[Martorell is] the first of that lineage of God-supplanters—Fielding, Balzac, Dickens, Flaubert, Tolstoy, Joyce, Faulkner—who try to create in their novels an “all-encompassing reality.””
—Mario Vargas Llosa
 
“The original Catalan, full of subtleties, runs the gamut from rhetorical prose to everyday conversation. David H. Rosenthal, who has a profound knowledge both of medieval and modern Catalan, undertook the arduous and risky talk of translating this great Catalan novel . . . and I can say that he was entirely successful in his heroic projects.”
—Martin de Riquer
