Review:

An expertly constructed network of coincidence and error, shot through with a level of dramatic irony not present in the work for which Gide is most renowned. --The Irish Times

Gide's subtle, snarky humor had me very entertained, even though many of the characters do completely depraved things. I understand why Gide was such a controversial author in his time. -- A Bookish Type

Quite brilliantly blackly comic. --Winston's Dad's blog

The Vatican Cellars is an entertaining, easy read and can be intellectually stimulating if you are interested to analyse it further. --Word by Word
