Notes & Reviews:

Gargantua and Pantagruel is a grotesque and carnivalesque collection of exuberant, fantastical stories that take the reader on a journey from the ancient world through the European Renaissance. With magical adventures, maniacal puns, and slapstick humor, this is possibly the zaniest and most risqué book ever written. This recording is of the original translation by Urquhard and Motteux, which has been celebrated for its fluidity and playfulness. Bill Homewood gives a virtuosic and delightfully exuberant reading of this extraordinary text. “…a narrator so perfectly matched to his material that you can’t help but smile.” (The Times)
