The Last Butterfly: Beautiful and heartbreaking ... It is in the changing of one man ... that one finds the most moving movements of the novel, as Antonin, the hasbeen clown, becomes a kind of hero of the human spirit. (Publisher's Weekly)

There is a deftness and economy in Mr. Jacot's characterizations, and a sense of dread of such immediacy as to render the novel all too memorable. (Saturday Review/World).

A simple unforgettable film unrolls before you as you read The Last Butterfly ... the horrors are implicit but hidden ... The happiness, the laughter, is as real as the despair. Ane more lasting. (Atlantic Monthly)
