Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An acknowledged masterpiece of twentieth century Hungarian fiction, a portrait of provincial life in the Austro-Hungarian monarchy at the turn of the ceutury. Focuses on one extraordinary week in the otherwise unevenful lives of an elderly Hungarian couple. Their ugly spinster daughter, nicknamed Skylark, has left them for an unprecedented holidy.

Synopsis:

The Central European Classics Series started when Timothy Garton Ash, general editor of the series, began to note down titles recommended to him by local writers in dim cafes in Budapest and Prague, in the heyday of political transition in East-Central Europe in 1989-1990. Garton Ash's aim, to take these works of nineteenth-and early twentieth century classic fiction 'out of the ghetto', onto the shelves of Western booksellers, and into the consciousness of Western readers has been successfully achieved. The series got completed in 2002, reissued with new covers in 2003.
