Product description

Review

One of those rare and lovely books . . . in the precision and quality of Rezzori's prose, in his passion for the perfect detail, and in his power to capture the reader's heart (Alan Furst)

[The series] sheds remarkable light on the literature, culture and politics of the region...anyone coming fresh to the field will be captivated by the richness, variety, humour and pathos of a classic literature that, through a shared historical experience, transcends national and linguistic boundaries. (CJ Schüler Independent on Sunday)

This [series] is a wonderful idea ... They are absurdist parables, by turns hilarious, unsettling and enigmatic. (Nicholas Lezard Guardian)

I urge you to go and read them. (Adam Thirlwell New Statesman)

This new series of Central European Classics is important well beyond simply providing 'good reads'. (Stephen Vizinczey Daily Telegraph)

About the Author

Gregor von Rezzori (1914-1988) was born in the Austro-Hungarian province of Bukovina (now part of Ukraine). At different points in his life he was a citizen of the Habsburg Empire, Romania, the Soviet Union and Austria, with a substantial interval of statelessness. He lived the latter part of his life in Italy.
