Why do swine say "never", when they don't know ... 13 Nov. 2014
By David Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Why do swine say "never", when they don't know the meaning of the word? I do. I know. I know exactly what you mean, chick. Move over. Make room. Make it with someone else besides just someone else. Monelle.

New Translation Available 30 Sept. 2012
By ajens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have not had the pleasure of reading this, as it has been out of print (as noted above) for some time, but I know of a new translation done by a dear friend who goes by the name Schluter. I believe it is being published by Wakefield Press, and should be available very soon. Do yourself a favor if you are a Schwob fan and get it pre-ordered asap. I think Powell books has it, but Amazon may as well. Enjoy!
