Some more Esther reviews

"George Szirtes's translation reads well apart from occasional jarring Americanisms, which I suspect were inflicted by the publisher." ~ The Independent

"Esther’s Inheritance is a frustrating little book. Márai purposefully allows terrible revelations to land without shock. And as Esther and Lajos regard themselves at a remove, inverting the archetypes of the good woman and the scoundrel, we are forced to regard them at one as well." ~ Bookslut
