La vida d'un infant de sis o set anys narrada per ell mateix. Els seus records explicats en frases curtes i incisives, sovint repetides però no per això menys crues i reals. La vida d'ell, de la seva germana i del petit que mort encara no amb dos anys. La dura vida del pare, la de la mare, la de l'avi... La vida en un petit poblet hongarès, la pobresa, el desarralament , els canvis de sistemes polítics: de l'Imperi Austrohongarès al domini de la Unió Soviètica... L´única novel·la de l'autor que se suicidar en arribar als 50 anys. Un cop comences a llegir no pots deixar-lo. Cal fer esment a la traducció que és immillorable, tota una creació de llenguatge. ( )

Bo el plantejament. Una història aclaparadora. Feixuc i repetitiu en l'execució. ( )

La face rurale, quotidienne, boueuse (et parfois chaleureuse) du pitoyable socialisme à visage humain... Le rideaux de fer cachait aussi une grande misère spirituelle (ce qui ne dédouane nullement les nantis). Un texte fort, dérangeant et parfois lumineux. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

In a tiny village in northeast Hungary a young, unnamed boy warily chronicles his family's struggles to survive. Ostracized because of his father's Jewish heritage and his mother's connections to the Kulaks, who once owned land and supported the fascist Horthy regime before it was toppled by Communists, their situation is worst than most. Related through a variety of narrative voices, these accounts reveal the history of Hungary through the physical and psychic traumas of two World Wars, and the country's treatment of Jews.… (more)
