This is the third and final volume of these enthralling diaries...For most of these ten years Prokofiev was based in Paris ... running like a dark thread is the pull back to Russia, in spite of all he learns of the horrors of life under Stalin.The magnificently translated text itself and Phillips' staggeringly thorough and erudite contribution in the footnotes offer an invaluable broader picture of the time. --Classical Music, December 2012
This is the third volume of what must surely be the most prolific and vividly written of composers' diaries. ..The year 1933, alas, marks the end of translator Anthony Phillips's detailed odyssey, complete with its hallmark footnotes (on everything from marginal characters to cars), magnificent index and luxurious Faber presentation. --BBC Music Magazine, December 2012
Sergey Prokofiev Diaries 1924-1933: Prodigal Son is the final volume in the critically-acclaimed Prokofiev Diaries.

A note on the typos: there are indeed a couple, and this is surprising given the immaculate presentation of the first two volumes. But they are very minor, and even if there are more than 100, which I doubt, we have to bear in mind that this part is well over 1100 densely printed pages, still making up a gorgeous volume.
