"An amalgam of utopia and despair is what characterizes An Eastern Epistolary, the work that the bookkeepers all too often 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 together fiction and a document… A whole that offers a surprising image of newer history, a kind of epopee of paradox."
Jean-Baptiste Michel: Le Nouvel Observateur
"An Eastern Epistolary fits into the tradition of epistolary novel… Some day this breviary will be read as a modern replica of Don Quixote."
Jean-Michel Palmier: Le Monde Diplomatique
