Locked Up With the Czech

November 29, 1987

Rose Styron's review of Eva Kanturkova's novel "My Companions in the Bleak House" (The Book Review, Nov. 22) contains a seriously myopic omission: the name of the translator. So as to appreciate the translator's importance, Styron's penance should consist of writing her next review of a translated book locked in a room with just the original. Out of kindness, your equally negligent Book Review editor could help her.

Editor's Note. The Overlook Press edition of Kanturkova's novel contains the following note: " 'My Companions in the Bleak House' was translated by a friend of the author who prefers to remain anonymous."
