Product Details

About the Author

Novelist, poet, and journalist, Deszo Kosztolanyi (1885-1936) is widely regarded as one of the great Hungarian writers. Bernard Adams won a PEN Translation Fund Award for his translation of The Adventures of Kornel Esti.


"Kosztolanyi was a ringleader in the 20th-century flowering of Hungarian literature, a poet who reformed the language, and a fiction writer of world class." -- The Guardian "Each of these stories displays a mastery of texture, nuance, and pacing that is absolutely first rate." -- Christopher Byrd - The Daily Beast "One of the most important and glittering writers of a Hungarian golden age, Kosztolanyi is multicolored and ineffable, like a rainbow. At the end of his life, the virtuoso Kornel Esti appears." -- Peter Esterhazy "If anyone ever truly wanted to write the history of the Hungarian people, the author would certainly take that Dantean first sentence of Kosztolanyi's Kornel Esti as the work's epigraph: in a word, the most wondrous first sentence ever written in the Hungarian language." -- Laszlo Krasznahorkai "A tender comedy tinged with the absurdity of life, the thrill of sociability, and the imminence of death, which I guess is exactly the kind of book I like." -- Chad Harbach
