Reviews

"An accurate, fluent translation that preserves the literal meaning and spirit of the original without becoming obscure and tedious requires a fine way with the English language and considerable knowledge of late colonial Mexico and Mexico City. That is a tall order, and I think David Frye has performed a minor miracle in this translation. The voice of the picaresque protagonist, the juicy stories and ironies, the author's moral outrage at personal pretense, arrogance, greed, and social injustice come to life in English in ways that are remarkably faithful to the author's style, pace, and mordant wit. Here in full is Fernandez de Lizardi's Mexico City of the last years of Spanish rule, rich in social types, sights, sounds, smells, and feelings. The translator's notes are... numerous and valuable..." -- William Taylor, Professor of History, University of California at Berkeley. "The Introduction is intelligent and very helpful to an audience who needs to be led into the field, and not too cumbersome to prove heavy..." -- Diana Sorensen, Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures, and of Comparative Literature, Harvard University.
