    Gary Shteyngart
  • A childhood favorite

    Philip Gourevitch
  • Among women novelists of great talent or genius, none, in my opinion, is to be placed higher than Selma Lagerlöf

    Marguerite Yourcenar
  • Every book of this great storyteller keeps on bringing us astonishing examples of her art... No one in Europe can tell tales so unforgettably

    Hermann Hesse
  • I am a strange Japanese who spent his infancy and boyhood under the overwhelming influence of Nils Holgersson. So great was Nils' influence on me that there was a time I could name Sweden's beautiful locales better than those of my own country... The destination of the soul: this is what I, led on by Nils Holgersson, came to seek in the literature of Western Europe

    Kenzaburo Oe
  • Grand, beautiful, exciting and poignant... This wise, rich text is a welcome addition to Penguin's Classics series
