This is the story that a Nobel Prize Committee survey of one hundred of the world's best writers named "the greatest book of all time."
DON QUIXOTE is the biggest-selling book of fiction ever written. It has sold more than 500 million copies.

"Gerald J. Davis's DON QUIXOTE is a translation for our time that is also mindful of times gone by. Davis's ear is attuned to clarity and meaning while honoring the tradition and language of the past. An engaging and compelling version of the great classic work of Cervantes." - Lennard J. Davis, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Department of English, University of Illinois at Chicago

"There is nothing more profound or powerful than this piece of fiction. It is still the finest and greatest expression of human thought, the most bitter irony that a man is capable of uttering." - Fyodor Dostoyevsky

"DON QUIXOTE looms so wonderfully above the skyline of literature, a gaunt giant on a lean nag, that the book lives and will live through its sheer vitality." - Vladimir Nabokov

"The highest creation of genius has been achieved by Shakespeare and Cervantes, almost alone." - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

"What a monument is this book. How its creative genius, critical, free and human, soars above its age." - Thomas Mann

A complex highly interwoven tale, this version translated by Gerald Davis sets the narrative off on a clear path. Translations are never easy, but this one simplifies the reader's interpretation of the tale and makes it an easy, intelligent tale. Well done. It's a great, classical read!

I must say that this was an absolute treat. I don't remember reading Don Quixote in school but I wish I did. It is the best read I have had in a long time and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am going to get copies for all my grandchildren. I recommend this book for all ages.
