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)

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