Incredibly rich, beautifully written, captivating.

I've passed it on to several people, all of whom have been mesmerized as well.


what a story

by donna on Mar 26, 2008

Two old men have a dialogue about a woman. Who would have thought that this could be so interesting. A real page turner of a novel, you will want to know how it ends. Recommended.


Death speaks

by WMiles on Apr 30, 2007

This Hungarian writer comes to the fore with a thought-provoking conversation between two old men after not having seen each other for 40 years. Did they both love the same woman? Why did she not stay in touch with either of them if she might have been found out? From a philosophical point of view, the conversation could be seen as a monologue, but that in itself says something about human nature. You won?t be able to stop flipping the pages, and you definitely won?t notice that it?s a translation either.
