An amalgam of utopia and despair iswhat characterizes An Eastern Epistolary, the work that the bookkeepers all toooften mistakenly place on the shelf of political literature. This is in fact a novel,in the sense Shklovsky and the Russian formalists saw it, bringing togetherfiction and a document… A whole that offers a surprising image of newerhistory, a kind of epopee of paradox.

An Eastern Epistolary fits into thetradition of epistolary novel… Some day thisbreviary will be read as a modern replica of DonQuixote.
Jean-MichelPalmier: Le Monde Diplomatique
This book is at the same time a humaneand literary testimony, in itself it conciliatesthe daring defense of freedom and deep cosmopolitan emotion,which knows nothing of national separation.
