Reviews

a marvellously Swiftian look at the bleakness of existence. * Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian *
In John Fletcher's wonderfully luminous translation, the Dictionnaire philosophique portatif is like a breath of fresh air... Nicholas Cronk's discreet, helpful introduction and notes direct us to Voltaire's main concern: religion. * David Coward, Times Literary Supplement *
