Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Barbara Harshav's translation-the first ever in English-is thoroughly smooth and enjoyable. She succeeds in preserving Agnon's unique style, Voltaire-like witticism, and literary beauty. -Alexander Zvielli, Jerusalem Post Princeton University Press has made Agnon's most celebrated work available for ordinary readers ... with the first English translation of Agnon's . . . mega-novel. -Susan Miron, Philadelphia Inquirer An epic novel . . . in a lively and accessible translation by Barbara Harshav. She uncannily captures the highly idiosyncratic voice and lilt, the full measure of provincialism and sophistication, of the master.... For this miracle of a translation . . . we can only be grateful. -Tova Reich, Washington Post A work of powerful, and eccentric, originality. -Robert Alter, Los Angeles Times Ancient religious longing, modern political aspirations, and personal dreams of liberation all intersect. . . . . [Agnon's] writing is so packed, so intensely allusive. This is one of the glories of [his] prose. -Jonathan Rosen, New York Times Book Review [Only Yesterday] is considered [Agnon's] masterpiece and has a claim to being the Great Israeli Novel. -Adam Kirsch, New Yorker
