about this book

Originally published in 1911, Max Beerbohm's sparklingly wicked satire concerns the unlikely events that occur when a femme fatale briefly enters the supremely privileged, all-male domain of Judas College, Oxford. Inspired throughout by Beerbohm's ornate imagination, this lyrical evocation of Edwardian undergraduate life at Oxford has, according to E.M. Forster, "a beauty unattainable by serious literature."

"Zuleika Dobson is a highly accomplished and superbly written book whose spirit is farcical. It is a great work--the most consistent achievement of fantasy in our funny and charming, so iridescent yet so profound."
--E.M. Forster

"Here is a novel worthy of the accolade bestowed upon it by the Modern Library, and if that much-discussed list generates more readers for Beerbohm's work, then it has served a noble purpose."
--Washington Times
