A Ballad of Love
Frederic Prokosch won international fame with his first novel, The Asiatics, which was translated into seventeen languages. His subsequent works have been highly praised by such writers as Thomas Mann and W. B. Yeats. And Albert Camus wrote as follows: "He has invented what might be called the geographical novel, in which he mingles sensuality with irony, lucidity with mystery. He conveys a fatalistic sense of life half-hidden beneath a rich animal energy. He is a master of moods and undertones, a virtuoso in the feeling of place, and he writes in a style of supple elegance."
