Short biography
Antal Szerb was born in 1901 into a cultivated  Budapest family of Jewish descent. Graduating in Hungarian, German and  English, he rapidly established himself as an outstanding scholar,  publishing books on drama and poetry, studies of Ibsen and Blake, and  histories of English, Hungarian, and World Literature. His first novel,  the satirical-philosophical The Pendragon Legend, 1934, was set in  London and Wales. His acknowledged masterpiece, Journey by  Moonlight, appeared in 1937. The Queen’s Necklace was composed,  together with a third novel, Oliver VII, amidst the wreckage of  war: both were instantly banned. In 1945 Szerb died in a forced-labour  camp in Western Hungary. A collection of stories and novellas, Love in  a Bottle, and three volumes of his literary-critical essays, were  published posthumously.  [from pushkinpress.com]
