Editorial Reviews

Review

“My favorite writer of fiction is Isaac Babel, primarily for one book, Red Cavalry. I find [it] endlessly haunting for its blunt yet somehow elusive style…it invariably leaves me feeling off balance and on edge. And I can't stop rereading it.”
- Richard Price, New York Times Book Review

“Marvelously subtle, tragic, and often comic commentaries on the desecration of revolutionary activity.”
- James Wood, The New Republic

“From the very first story, Red Cavalry opens like a cannon shot. In glorious, expressionist description, a cavalry division has forded the Zbrucz River at night…Amid beauty, amid courage and even warmth that are often overwhelming, there are butchery and murder, acts that can never be forgiven, only forgotten, and Babel does not let you forget.”
- James Salter, Los Angeles Times Book Review

“If you want to read spectacularly graceful distillations of spectacularly intense, complex, ephemeral experience, you could hardly do better than stories in Isaac Babel’s Red Cavalry.”
- Deborah Eisenberg, Lithub.com
