Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"Part of the pleasure of 'Rates of Exchange' is Malcom Bradbury's creation of a whole country and a language to go with it....The Slakan language, which has untold complexities and irregularities, is 'a little bit Latin, a little bit German, a little bit Finn.' ...No one in Slaka can manage Petworth's surname....'Rates of Exchange' is not only an intellectual jeu d'esprit, full of linguistic sprightliness and sly academic and political jokes; it is warmly affectionate and often very funny, a surprisingly endearing novel."

Frances Taliaferro, Harper's, 11/83

Review:

"Bradbury is in such virtuoso form that he can even make you enjoy an entire book in which the majority of the characters speak varying degrees of broken English."

Anatole Broyard, New York Times, 10/01/1983
