Editorial Reviews

Review

“Hesperus Press's elegant reissue of Jonathan Swift's slim, unfinished Directions to Servants.” -- The Atlantic

“Though this dates back to 1731, it still can produce laughs.” -- Library Journal

Journalist and political correspondent Colm Toibin is one of Ireland's leading contemporary writers. His most recent novel is the Booker-shortlisted The Blackwater Lightship.

Swift was such a satiric genius that you can't fail to enjoy this book. Not only is it ribald but it gives you insight into the long vanished world of servants and masters.

Funny from first to last. Great to see that all of us have not wanted to do other people's dirty work for a couple hundred years (at least...).
