Giving credit where due

Regarding the book review "A Banquet of a Book," July 24: The reviewer praises author Erik Orsenna's prose in "Love and Empire" as "sweet and smooth" and "light as mousse."But the prose she quotes in support of her judgment is that of the translator, Jeremy Leggatt. The credit should be given where it is due. Philip Dacey, Lynd, Minn. Letters are welcome. Only a selection can be published, subject to condensation, and none acknowledged.
