KIRKUS REVIEW

Fictionized biography of the creator of Don Quixote, and first class reading. Sell to the public that liked the Harold Lamb, Omar Khayyam, not for similarity in subject matter, but rather for similarity in handling traditional material, with a somewhat hazy background of fact. One gets a sense of authenticity in the presentation of the character, as well as in the dramatic and colorful background of the Spain of those days. A book that may need to be ""sold"" but that will repay a little special promotion on the part of the bookseller.
