Summary
"A hypnotic, hauntingly beautiful first novel from Szilárd Borbély, one of the most important authors of contemporary Hungarian literature, that depicts the world of unimaginable poverty, deprivation, and cruelty experienced by a partly-Jewish family in a rural Hungarian village in the late 1960's and early 1970's"--
In a tiny village in northeast Hungary a young, unnamed boy warily chronicles his family's struggles to survive. Ostracized because of his father's Jewish heritage and his mother's connections to the Kulaks, who once owned land and supported the fascist Horthy regime before it was toppled by Communists, their situation is worst than most. Related through a variety of narrative voices, these accounts reveal the history of Hungary through the physical and psychic traumas of two World Wars, and the country's treatment of Jews.
