Memoir of Hungary

Sándor Márai

"A chronicle of political, social, and also spiritual change in the capital as the Communist Party tightened its grip on all phases of life…The forced propinquity of the tall, elegant Middle European who spent his free time absorbed in Spengler`s Decline of the West with Russian, Kirghiz, and Buryat peasant boys was an eye-opener to both sides."
- The New York Review of Books

This scathing, at times humorous, and always insightful memoir by exiled Hungarian novelist Sándor Márai, author of posthumous world success Embers, provides one of the most poignant and human portraits of life in Hungary between the German occupation in 1944 and the consolidation of Communist power in 1948.
