‘La Superba’ is Pfeijffer’s masterpiece, and was greeted with unanimous acclaim, including the most prominent recognition with the Libris Literature Prize 2014, the Netherlands’ most prestigious literary award, and the Tzum Prize, awarded for ‘the most beautiful sentence of the year’, which he has now won twice. ‘La Superba’ is a classic, wide-ranging, engaged novel, a rambling, bizarre, hilarious, touching Rabelaisian epic from a true master of language.

— NRC Handelsblad: “Witty throughout, it’s extraordinarily well written, an ode to the imagination”

— Vrij Nederland:  “You read his salutary, pleasure-seeking prose to feast upon language. Bravissimo.”
