Reviews

The Last Wolf reveals what a light-footed and lucid writer Krasznahorkai is, how he entertains as well as disturbs. The book is an excellent short introduction to his fiction, much as Metamorphosis is to Kafka ... Krasznahorkai's method is to examine reality "to the point of madness" and he does so with majestic style and black comedy. -- Luke Brown * Financial Times * Unforgettably visceral and beautiful * Observer * Together, The Last Wolf and Herman raise a set of spiritual questions that affirms their author as one of the most important - and eccentric - writers working today. * Spectator * Melancholy, fantastical and entirely original ... seductive and comical, too -- Adam Thirlwell * Guardian * Exquisite ... claustrophobic, exhilarating and tinged with fatal comedy * New Statesman * Wonderful ... perfectly judged -- David Mills * Sunday Times * A visionary writer of extraordinary intensity and vocal range who captures the texture of present day existence in scenes that are terrifying, strange, appallingly comic and often shatteringly beautiful ... magnificent works of deep imagination -- Man Booker International Prize citation The Last Wolf is a great introduction to the world of Laszlo Krasznahorkai. Enter here and keep going. -- Sjon [Krasznahorkai has] a magnificently strange and hypnotic way of thinking. * TLS * Under his dark star of melancholy, nostalgia for the sacred haunts our godforsaken age. * 1843 *
