Product description

Review

This majestic translation finally gives us its inimitable, nightmarish pleasures at first hand * Sunday Times * Regarded as a classic, Satantango is a monster of a novel: compact, cleverly constructed, often exhilarating, and possessed of a distinctive, compelling vision... It is brutal, relentless and so amazingly bleak that it's often quite funny. This is an obviously brilliant novel. Krasznahorkai is a visionary writer... The grandeur is clearly palpable. -- Theo Tait * Guardian * Intoxicating and exhilarating, bleak yet beautiful, Satantango is a modern masterpiece that manages to speak both of its time and to transcend it altogether -- Beth Jones * Sunday Telegraph *
