Praise

“A rollicking, elegant novel … it gives the 21st-century reader a sense of the kind of book that used to be called a ‘racy French novel.’ What a treat to have it back in print.”
—Dennis Drabelle, The Washington Post

“Exquisite … the kind of book that gets described as ‘a delightful romp’ in press materials, and that’s not an inaccurate description of a book that functions beautifully as both send-up of high society and globe-spanning adventure story, but the novel has a deathly serious core. The featherweight prose proves a brilliant set-up for the darkness that Séliman encounters when he’s eventually sent into the Soviet Union …”
—Emily St. John Mandel, The Millions

“A tale M. Dekobra told so artfully that it tore through five editions like a sickle-bar mower.”
—S.J. Perelman, The New Yorker (1949)
