20 Th Century

A Book of Memories by Péter Nádas

By Péter Nádas

First released in Hungary in 1986 after a five-year conflict with censors, Péter Nádas's A e-book of stories is a contemporary vintage, a multi-layered narrative that tells 3 parallel tales of affection and betrayal. the 1st happens in East Berlin within the Seventies and lines an unnamed Hungarian author ensnared in a love triangle with a tender German and a well-known getting older actress. the second one, composed through the author, is the tale of a overdue 19th century German aesthete whose studies reflect his personal. And the 3rd voice is that of a pal from the writer's adolescence, who brings his personal unforeseen bearing to the tale. in comparison by means of critics to Proust, Mann, and Joyce, this sensuous journey de strength is "unquestionably a masterpiece"
