Review:

The Man Without Qualities is one of the towering achievements of the European novel (Observer)

I would recommend Sophie Wilkins' translation as a conscientious attempt to give to the English reader a novel which is compared to The Remembrance of Things Past and Ulysses (The Times)

Immensely rich and therapeutic, bristling with wit and a sly humour (Sunday Telegraph)

At last, at last - the fully fleshed arrival in English of the third member of the trinity in twentieth-century fiction, complementing Ulysses and The Remembrance of Things Past . . . This last-waltz novel is amazingly contemporary (Wall Street Journal)

There is scarcely a page that does not provoke new thoughts or offer new insights, not a chapter that, even read on its own, does not prove stimulating (Scotsman)

Book Description:

Part satire, part visionary epic, part intellectual tour de force
