Reviews

“[Desvignes’] oeuvre offers literary creations of the highest order . . . We can, as it were, experience vicariously but for ourselves the passions, the fears, the hopes of people who appear perhaps superficially different from us, but whose humanity we all share, As in all great literature, we find here something which will deepen our understanding of our common humanity. What more can we ask?” – Prof. Michael C. Oswald
