> « Un héros comme Mangeclous atteint à l'épique. Il y a là, à mon sens, quelque chose sans aucune espèce de comparaison. Il y a du souffle de Rabelais. C'est comme dans Rabelais : on accepte tout. On accepte tout parce qu'il y a un amour du personnage, parce qu'il y a une manière démesurée de le traiter qui fait que simplement on est ébloui.» —Joseph Kessel.
« L'admirable Mangecloux, un grand héros comique d'une drôlerie extraordinaire. Le comique de Mangeclous est juif par sa subtilité, par les récifs de mélancolie qui affleurent soudain, par l'observation féroce et tendre qui le nourrit. Mais ce roman acquiert une portée générale par son humanité, son grand rire salubre, sa verve populaire. Sa fraîcheur, sa fruste saveur, sa robuste simplicité le font accéder à la majesté des légendes populaires et des grandes épopées.» —Marcel Pagnol. --Pauline Hamon (Culturebox)
