    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.

  • A Concise History of Hungary

    A Concise History of Hungary

    Molnár, Miklós
    Kiadó: Cambridge University Press
    This book offers a comprehensive thousand-year history of the land, people, society, culture and economy of Hungary, from its nebulous origins in the Ural Mountains to the elections of 1988. It tells above all the thrilling story of a people which becamea great power in the region and then fought against - and was invaded by - Ottomans, Germans and Soviets. The Hungarian people preserved nevertheless a continuous individuality through its Ural-born language and a specifically Hungaro-European culture.Dominated from the sixteenth century by the Habsburgs, while ruling its own national minorities, Hungary was deprived of two-thirds of its lands and peoples through successive treaties which followed the two World Wars, after which it fell under Sovietdomination for nearly fifty years. Free and independent since 1990, Hungary continues to seek its rightful position in Europe. A comprehensive history of the Hungarian lands and peoples from early medieval times to the fall of communism  Illustrated by many photographs and maps which illuminate the text  Written by a very experienced, authoritative author, who has himselfsuffered from the dramatic upheavals in Hungarian history in the twentieth century

  • 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

  • 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

    All That Man Is

    Szalay, David
    Kiadó: Random House,Uk
    Nine men. Each of them at a different stage of life, each of them away from home, and each of them striving -in the suburbs of Prague, beside a Belgian motorway, in a cheap Cypriot hotel - to understand just what it means to be alive, here and now.Tracing an arc from the spring of youth to the winter of old age, All That Man Is brings these separate lives together to show us men as they are - ludicrous and inarticulate, shocking and despicable
