Editorial Reviews


"[The Loop] is a childhood autobiography, a tour de force of improvisation, a storehouse of poetical, philosophical, logical and historical treasures, and without doubt Roubaud's most impressive work to date . . . no amount of rereading will ever quite exhaust the imaginative potential of this sparking, encyclopaedic panorama of one of the most fascinating and well-furnished minds of our time." --David Bellos, Times Literary Supplement

"Roubaud is a humorous and sometimes earthy writer whose work can be enjoyed by a wide variety of readers." --San Diego Tribune

"Roubaud's book is remarkable . . . The Great Fire of London is an entirely sympathetic book to read, but in its careful organization it is also a heartening one, as showing the power of artifice to manage even the keenest of distress." --John Sturrock, Times Literary Supplement
