This does Richard Howard a disservice, because he is one of the great translators from French to English, and his prose here is always fluid, supple and elegant: this is one of those rare occasions where you actually forget that you are reading a translation.


Perhaps more bizarrely – unless I missed something (and one should always allow for the possibility that a page might have fallen out of the box) – there is no sign of the author’s explanatory note. I know this exists, because I found it in the French edition, of which the British Library holds two copies: both, I’m sorry to say, diligently bound by over-zealous librarians (though at least each copy has the pages bound in a different order).

Comedian Pablo Francisco to offer voice-over skills – San Bernardino County Sun.
