  • Giono gives us the world we live in, a world of dream, passion and reality

    Henry Miller
  • There is still dew on this world of Giono's; he looks out on it and records his impressions of it almost as if he were the first man seeing it. The emotions of his people are refreshingly forthright and uncomplicated, and in his pages man stands in his natural relation to the animate and inanimate world about him

    New York Times
  • Jean Giono is one of the giants of modern French letters. He is the poet of the French countryside and of the French peasant, of man and nature, and the relation of man to nature. His books stand apart; there is nothing else in all French literature quite like them

    Living Age
  • As with Faulkner, we have blood, night, violence, myth. To read Giono is to be immersed

    François Nourissier
