Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"No one who has read it has failed to love it."—Nicholas Lezard, Guardian

"Szerb belongs with the master novelists of the twentieth century."—Paul Bailey, Daily Telegraph

ANXIOUS TO PLEASE his bourgeois father, Mihaly has joined the family firm in Budapest. Pursued by nostalgia for his bohemian youth, he seeks escape in marriage to Erzsi, not realising that she has chosen him as a means to her own rebellion. On their honeymoon in Italy Mihaly "loses" his bride at a provincial station and embarks on a chaotic and bizarre journey that leads him finally to Rome. There all the death-haunted and erotic elements of his past converge, and he, like Erzsi, has finally to choose.
