‘Patrick Healy … has put a robust Dublin vernacular to effective use in a lively translation that is meticulously alert to Kraus’s subversive nuance and range of personalities and clever stereotypes … From Vienna’s streets and coffee houses to the devastated landscape of the Somme, where Kraus depicts the dead walking among the gas-masked living, this dazzling indictment declaims anew in its entirety. Patrick Healy’s translation will mesmerise readers and should entice stage directors.’ – Eileen Battersby, The Irish Times, 2 July 2016
‘It is wonderful to at last have the Viennese satirist’s entire modernist masterwork … available, complete, and with a scholarly introduction … Healy conveys the communal bewilderment and rage in a dazzling vernacular as a chorus of voices reacts to the outbreak of the Great War and the hell it created … It sizzles and flares.’ – Eileen Battersby’s favourite fiction and nonfiction of 2016, The Irish Times, December 17, 2016.
‘Like Proust’s novel of seven volumes, In Search of Lost Time, The Last Days of Mankind is not just a huge document, it is an important interpretation of a world at war and the beginnings of globalisation, which would intimately undermine the nation states it gave birth to.’ – Gerard Howlin, Irish Examiner, 28 December 2016
