If translators are the anonymous heroes of contemporary literature, its anonymous superhero is Gregory Rabassa.

The New York Times Book Review

Excellent literary entertainment. Read these pages while sipping a Brazilian caipirinha, and you’ll spend a fine and mellow evening.

—Michael Dirda, The Washington Post Book World

In this supple narrative, packed with erudition and yet leavened by Rabassa’s mordant, often self-effacing wit, less becomes more.

Newsweek

Widely considered one of the greatest practitioners of his craft.
