Da jeg fant ut at Mario Vargas Llosa har skrevet en hel bok om sitt forhold til Flaubert og Madame Bovary, ble jeg nysgjerrig og bestilte boken fra Amazon.co.uk.
The Perpetual Orgy is a marvelous companion piece to Flaubert's novel. Vargas Llosa shows a deep critical understanding of the text, and offers a useful gloss on it, but it is particularly his personal relationship with the book -- what it has meant for him and what he has gotten out of it -- that make it valuable.
Highly recommended.(Les resten av denne omtalen HER.)
