Reviews

"Ferdydurke is certainly a spontaneous work, but the Diary is even more so, and . . . even more rewarding."-John Bayley, New York Review of Books -- John Bayley * New York Review of Books *

"Having this book in my hands, I felt a joy at the thought that strong personalities, like that of Gombrowicz, sooner or later find recognition thanks to the sheer intensity of their existence."-Czeslaw Milosz, New York Times

-- Czeslaw Milosz * New York Times *

"If ever a life demanded a diary, this was one."-Paul West, Washington Post

-- Paul West * Washington Post *
"Yale University Press by reprinting in a beautiful fat paperback an up-dated complete edition of the Diaries of Witold Gombrowicz has done a singular important, essential and remarkable job."-Thomas McGonigle, ABC of Reading -- Thomas McGonigle * ABC of Reading *

"Widely considered the Polish author's masterpiece . . . the Diary lacks for nothing: history, politics, philosophy, literature, art, music, love, death, humor, communism, Poland, Europe, writing-everything is there."-Paris Review Daily * Paris Review Daily *
"A heroic translation . . . English-speaking readers can finally experience the diary as Gombrowicz intended it-as a single, coherent work . . . his major creative endeavor."-Ruth Franklin, New Yorker * New Yorker *
"The spiky brilliance and episodes of vivid experience that share the pages of the Diary with essay-length reflections give the collection as a whole a restive, fugitive rhythm. . . . A provocative experience."-Eric Banks, Bookforum -- Eric Banks * Bookforum *
