The Polyglots

 A classic comedic masterpiece that will be embraced by a new generation of readers --- both of serious fiction and of comedic ficton --- The Polyglots initially published in 1925, and was celebrated by Anthony Powell as "a classic." It is the story of an eccentric Belgian family living in the Far East after World War I and the Russian Revolution. The tale is recounted by the family's young English relative, Captain Georges Hamlet Alexander Diabologh, who visits during a military mission. Bursting with bizarre characters --- from depressives to sex maniacs --- Gerhardie delivers a remarkably absurd world where comedy and tragedy are never far apart.
