    Kiadó: Alma Books
    Tibor Fischer legújabb regényének főszereplője, a született lúzer. Tyndale Corbett egy barátjától kölcsönzött bankkártyával érkezik Miamiba, ahol nem sokáig élvezi a luxushotelek és a névtelen gazdagság előnyeit, ugyanis úgy dönt, beadja a helyieknek,hogy ő maga az Isten. A kacagtatóan mulatságos szatirikus regény Angliában és Amerikában is remek kritikákat kapott.A könyv magyar kiadása Megváltás Miamiban címen jelent meg.Using the credit card and identity of a handcuffs salesman, professional failure Tyndale Corbett arrives inMiami for a law enforcement conference to discover the joys of luxury hotels and above all the delight of being someone else, someone successful. Feeling his previous lack of success might be due to insufficient ambition, Tyndale decides on a newmoney-making scheme. He will up the ante substantially, exponentially and pretend to be someone really important and successful: God. His mission to convince the citizenry of Miami that he is, despite appearances, the Supreme Being results in him takingover the Church of the Heavily Armed Christ. His duties there involve him in forming a private army, hiring call girls, trafficking coke, issuing death threats, beating off church-jackers and sorting out (as almightily as possible) various problems hisparishioners are having with pets. All the while he is working on his grand project, the clincher miracle, dying and coming back to life

    Detective Story *

    Kertész,Imre
    Kiadó: Random House,Uk
    A kéziratot, amelyet az alábbiakban közrebocsátok, védencem: Antonio R. Martens bízta rám. Hogy kicsoda ő, azt megtudják majd tőle magától.Elöljáróban annyit csupán, hogy értelmi színvonalához képest meglepő íráskészséget árult el, mint különben tapasztalatom szerint mindenki, aki egyszer életében rászánja magát, hogy szembenézzen sorsával. Hivatalból kirendelt védőügyvédje voltam. Abűnvádi eljárás folyamán Martens, a terhére rótt többszörös gyilkosságban való bűnrészesség vádját sem tagadni, sem szépíteni nem próbálta. (részlet a könyvből)Kertész Imre 1977-es Detektívtörténet című kisregényének német nyelvű kiadásakor közölt recenziótökéletesen felépítettnek nevezte a valahol Latin-Amerikában játszódó elbeszélést.A szerző lélegzetelállítóan mesél arról a rémálomról, hogy mit jelent önkény áldozatának lenni.

  • Kaddish For An Unborn Child *

    Kaddish For An Unborn Child *

    Kertész,Imre
    Kiadó: Random House,Uk
    The first word of this haunting novel is 'no'. It is how the narrator, a middle-aged Hungarian Jewish writer, answers an acquaintance who asks if he has a child and it is how he answered his, now ex-, wife when she told him she wanted a baby.The loss, longing, and regret that haunt the years between those two 'no's' give rise to one of the most eloquent meditations ever written on the Holocaust. As Kertesz's narrator addresses the child he couldn't bear to bring into the world, he takesreaders on a mesmerising, lyrical journey through his life, from his childhood to Auschwitz to his failed marriage.

  • A Book of Memories

    A Book of Memories

    Nádas,Péter
    Kiadó: Random House,Uk
    A Book of Memories is made up of three first-person narratives:The first, that of a young Hungarian writer and his fated love for a German poet: we also learn of the narrator's adolescence in Budapest, when he experiences the downfall of his once upper-class but now pro-Communist family.A second memoir, alternating with the first, is a novel the narrator is composing about a refined Belle Epoque aesthete, whose anti-bourgeois transgressions seem like emotionally overcharged versions of the narrator's own experiences.A third voice is that of a childhood friend who, after the narrator's return to his homeland, offers an apparently more objective account of their friendship.Together these brilliantly coloured lives are integrated into a powerful work of tragic intensity.

  • Abigail

    Abigail

    Szabó Magda
    Kiadó: Hachette Uk
    Of all her novels, Magda Szabó's Abigail is the most widely read in her native Hungary. Now, fifty years after it was written, it appears for the first time in English, joining Katalin Street and The Door in a loose trilogy about the impact of war onthose who have to live with the consequences.It is late 1943 and Hitler, exasperated by the slowness of his Hungarian ally to act on the Jewish question and alarmed by the weakness on his southern flank, is preparing to occupy the country. Foreseeing this, and concerned for his daughter'ssafety,a Budapest father decides to send her to a boarding school away from the capital.A lively, sophisticated, somewhat spoiled teenager, she is not impressed by the reasons she is given, and when the school turns out to be a fiercely Puritanical one in a provincial city a long way from home, she rebels outright. Her superior attitudeoffends her new classmates and things quickly turn sour.It is the start of a long and bitter learning curve that will open her eyes to her arrogant blindness to other people's true motives and feelings. Exposed for the first time to the realities of life for those less privileged than herself, andincreasingly confronted by evidence of the more sinister purposes of the war, she learns lessons about the nature of loyalty, courage, sacrifice and love.Translated from the Hungarian by Len Rix

    Márai,Sándor
    Kiadó: Macmillan*
    Twenty years after leaving her, the great love of Esther's life sends a telegram. Tomorrow, he tells her, he is coming back.Esther has not forgotten that her dazzling lover is a fantasist and a liar, nor that he caused her unimaginable hurt. But she also remembers how he made her feel, how he woke a part of her that has ever since been sleeping. A special meal is planned, acar arrives at the house, and - in a heightened visit for which Esther is not remotely prepared - their two lives converge for a second, dizzying time.`Like Embers, the novella recounts a dramatically charged meeting after a gap of decades, and it has a similarly intricate symbolism' Guardian`In times of recession, they say, gold never loses its value. Neither do literary gems . . . There are some great writers I find it hard to talk about without gushing, and Marai is on that list' Sunday Herald`Rediscovering Marai is like finding an Old Master painting in the attic' Sunday Telegraph

  • A Guest In My Own Country

    A Guest In My Own Country

    Konrád,György
    Kiadó: Random House
    A powerful memoir of war, politics, literature, and family life by one of Europe's leading intellectuals.When George Konrád was a child of eleven, he, his sister, and two cousins managed to flee to Budapest from the Hungarian countryside the day before deportations swept through his home town. Ultimately, they were the only Jewish children of the town tosurvive the Holocaust.A Guest in My Own Country recalls the life of one of Eastern Europe's most accomplished modern writers, beginning with his survival during the final months of the war. Konrád captures the dangers, the hopes, the betrayals and courageous acts of theperiod through a series of carefully chosen episodes that occasionally border on the surreal (as when a dead German soldier begins to speak, attempting to justify his actions).The end of the war launches the young man on a remarkable career in letters and politics. Offering lively descriptions of both his private and public life in Budapest, New York, and Berlin, Konrád reflects insightfully on his role in the HungarianUprising, the notion of internal emigration - the fate of many writers who, like Konrád, refused to leave the Eastern Bloc under socialism - and other complexities of European identity. To read A Guest in My Own Country is to experience the recenthistory of East-Central Europe from the inside.kartonált, 303 oldal

    Katalin Street (Pb)

    Szabó Magda
    Kiadó: Quercus
    In prewar Budapest three families live side by side on gracious Katalin Street, their lives closely intertwined. A game is played by the four children in which Bálint, the promising son of the Major, invariably chooses Irén Elekes, the headmaster'sdutiful elder daughter, over her younger sister, the scatterbrained Blanka, and little Henriette Held, the daughter of the Jewish dentist.Their lives are torn apart in 1944 by the German occupation, which only the Elekes family survives intact. The postwar regime relocates them to a cramped Soviet-style apartment and they struggle to come to terms with social and political change, personalloss, and unstated feelings of guilt over the deportation of the Held parents and the death of little Henriette, who had been left in their protection. But the girl survives in a miasmal afterlife, and reappears at key moments as a mute witness to theinescapable power of past events.As in The Door and Iza's Ballad, Magda Szabó conducts a clear-eyed investigation into the ways in which we inflict suffering on those we love. Katalin Street, which won the 2007 Prix Cévennes for Best European novel, is a poignant, sombre, at timesharrowing book, but beautifully conceived and truly unforgettable.
