"The circuitous absorption of The Translator's Bride is sustained by its novella-like structure and dark, gleaming humor. . . . [Its] language is beautiful, mordant, and tragic."--Meg Nola, Foreword Reviews "The Translator's Bride is a neurotic little gem: fast, fun, frenzied, and feisty."--Jeremy Garber, Powell's Books "The Translator's Bride is a great little book that brings a breath of fresh air to today's moment in Portuguese literature, asserting itself as an excellent novel not to be forgotten."--Jorge Navarro, O Tempo Entre Os Meus Livros "Joï¿½o Reis . . . is a great connoisseur of literary comedy, in a subtle way in which everything is so natural, but simultaneously rude, with the cruel ways in which various characters are depicted, thus creating a blackly comic web that weaves together the world of the book."--Nelson Zagalo, Virtual Illusion "Joï¿½o Reis' great success in The Translator's Bride is to convince his audience that they are reading a work written at modernism's mid-twentieth-century zenith . . . pulling us out of our own times and holding us in the era of Ulysses and Mrs Dalloway."--West Camel, European Literature Network "Reis's novel is both surprising and hilarious."--Publishers Weekly
