Description

Job is perfect. . . . a novel as lyric poem. --Joan Acocella

Galician Jewry achieved another grand figure in Joseph Roth, whose Job is both immensely sorrowful and finally strangely hopeful. --Harold Bloom

Job is more than a novel and legend, it is a pure, perfect poetic work, which is destined to outlast everything that we, his contemporaries, have created and written. In unity of construction, in depth of feeling, in purity, in the musicality of the language, it can scarcely be surpassed. --Stefan Zweig

This life of an everyday man moves us as if someone had written of our lives, our longings, our struggles. Roth's language has the discipline and rigor of German Classicism. A great and harrowing book that no one can resist. --Ernst Toller

A beautifully written, and in the end uplifting, parable for an era of upheaval . . . Job, opened to any page, offers something of beauty. . . Ross Benjamin's excellent new translation gives us both the realism and the poetry. --The Quarterly Conversation

The totality of Joseph Roth's work is no less than a trag�die humaine achieved in the techniques of modern fiction. --Nadine Gordimer
