This is a strange book to read. I am a great fan of Sandor Marai, but this is unlike other works of his I have read.

It is perplexing because it is a work of fiction (the narrator is a woman in her mid twenties and therefore not Marai), but it has the testimonial weight of a memoir or a documentary (and therefore it is not very fictional). It is also highly poetical and subtle and delicate in its observations, and so cannot then be a documentary. And yet, as a vignette of a bloody episode in European history (a few hours during the liberation of Budapest by the Red Army from its Nazi occupants) it has the impact and value of a testimony.

The plot is simple and other reviewers have left some summaries (albeit in Italian and Portuguese), and so there is no point in providing another one.

I have withheld the fifth star because I wanted more.
