About the book

The Graphic Deluxe Edition of Les Miserables is a new translation of the Victor Hugo classic by Christine Donougher. This is the first new Penguin Classics translation in 40 years, and this edition has a gorgeous cover by beloved illustrator Jillian Tamaki (you might know her work from the New York Times Book Review, where she illustrates the “By the Book” column, or This One Summer, her Caldecott Award-winning graphic novel).

The Times Literary Supplement called Donougher’s translation, “a magnificent achievement. It reads easily, sometimes racily, and Hugo’s narrative power is never let down…[an] almost flawless translation, which brings the full flavour of one of the greatest novels of the nineteenth century to new readers in the twenty-first.” Penguin’s accessible edition invites fans of the award-winning screen and stage adaptations to discover, or rediscover, the compelling novel that started it all.
