"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
A funny novel about sex, or rather (which is rarer) a novel which is funny as well as touching about sex ... elegant, exact and melodious (Isabel Quigly Sunday Telegraph)
The delicious adventures of a young Casanova who appreciates maturity while acquiring it himself. In turn naive, sophisticated, arrogant, disarming, the narrator woos his women and his tale wins the reader (Polly Devlin Vogue)
Spectacular! It's always a risky business, re-reading a book which was important to you in your adolescence. But re-reading this one, I was struck by a great deal that I missed before ... a much richer book than I remembered. Immensely pleasurable. (A. A. Gill (2010))
A skinny book with a funny name, a title I didn't know, by an author I'd never heard of, which turns out to be just wonderful (John Self (2010) theasylum.wordpress.com)
In Praise of Older Women is as singular as a lemon tree or a giraffe or a ripe pear.In a voice free of vanity and subterfuge, the writer tells a story of the worst of times, and the ever-shifting truths about girls and youths, men and women and their sexual connections--and mis-connections--in a way that is always luminous and enlightening. (Paula Fox)
Stephen Vizinczey's remarkable, acclaimed worldwide bestseller In Praise of Older Women is published in Penguin Modern Classics.
'I am not an expert on sex, but I was a good student of the women I loved, and I'll try to recall those happy and unhappy experiences which, I believe, made a man out of me,' writes the narrator of this novel. Originally published by the author himself in 1965, In Praise of Older Women became an international bestseller and renowned classic, and its title is now part of the language.
Stephen Vizinczey (b.1933) is a poet, playwright and novelist, best known for his novels In Praise of Older Women (1965) and An Innocent Millionaire (1983). Born in Hungary, he was only two years old when his father was assassinated by the Nazis, and later also lost his uncle to the communists. Having studied under George Lukacs at the University of Budapest, he graduated from the city's Academy of Theatre and Film Arts in 1956. He took part in the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, and later emigrated to Canada, speaking only fifty words of English. He learned the language while writing scripts for the National Film Board of Canada; subsequently, he founded and edited a literary-political magazine, Exchange, and joined CBC/Radio Canada as a writer and producer. In 1966 he moved to London where he still lives.
