Az élet álom

Nd dispossessed these tales of love food death and sex are ironic and wise about the human condition and the futility of life and display fully Krudy's wit and mastery of the form Life is a Dream apparently the last book of Krudy s published in his lifetime is a bit of a letdown after Sindbad and Sunflower We have lots of description of people eating and drinking and preparing food cabbage marrow sour lungs noodle soup etc but not so much the insight into our dreams desires and wickedness that Krudy displayed in his other books nor the fantastical prose excursions they engendered There are still hilarious descriptions of people but aside from some ironies about people s deluded certainties about where their lives are headed and the accompanying judgments about the people around them in the first two stories these stories don t really have much meat on the bones

    For a relatively short book this took me a very long time to read It comprises ten short stories that the destitute Hungarian author selected from his own works in order to have something to submit for a prize he'd been told he had a than good chance of winning which he did apparently but the prize money was shared and distributed over two

    Sorry but this was one of those really abstract fantastical compilations I didn't understand though I would think that the author loves food in particular fine dining a lot because a lot of the stories involve very elaborate descriptions of hearty Eastern European food in particular meats stews and soupsI comple
