Digital Trust hIe in concentration camps should be good books or better than this book This is exactly the kind of decadent art thatad Hitler cowering behind Tootles The Taxi And Other Rhymes his landscape paintings andis collection of Greek nudes Is it just me or are the modernists looking worn to the nubbin as time goes on All these people in chinos and espadrilles wandering purposelessly across pastoral landscapes bothered by some vague indefinable something which is all very fine and good if the book gives me an entryway into the individual s crisis for lack of a better word and not a droning nothingness But don t take my word for it I m a uitter Maybe this book kicks into gear somewhere beyond the one third marker which is where my drug store receipt bookmark is and will remain I consider myself duped by this looker of a book cover Look at that photograph of the On My Knees (Stark International Trilogy, horse on the bridge in Venice It suggests a certain greatness to simple minds In other words marketing is the last great art Over the last few years I vead a lot of pleasure and satisfaction from books set in and around Eastern Europe I was inspired to seek interesting Eastern European books and so it was that I came across Journey by MoonlightAt the time of writing the most liked review of Journey by Moonlight on GoodReads and the third most liked review were from readers who were unable to finish this book That concerned me I do not generally ave much patience with difficult books I adore beautiful atmospheric writing but not at the expense of clarity When I noticed the phrase modernist masterpiece in amongst some praise for the book I was even apprehensive So I am pleased and relieved to report that Journey by Moonlight is both easy to read and enjoyable and this English translation by Len Rix from the original Hungarian is beautifulJourney by Moonlight is concerned with that oary old chestnut life what s it all about The uestion is explored through the central character Mih ly a dreamy distracted person who The Three Elizabeths has drifted into the family business and a life of compromised bourgeois tedium and respectability and which is at odds withis bohemian past Whilst on The Hate U Give hisoneymoon Mih ly Building Vocabulary Skills has a crisis which seesim looking back on Sheet Metal Shop Practice his past and considering the best way to liveis lifeJourney by Moonlight is a wonderfully subtle surprising and original book Whilst I Cait and the Devil have some sympathy with those readers who mightave got exasperated with it I can assure you that perseverance pays rich dividends Beautifully written unpredictable playful intelligent and uietly profound and it got progressively interesting and beguiling By around the alfway point I was captivated and each time I put it down I couldn t wait to pick it back up againSo who was Antal Szerb According to Pushkin Press who published this English edition of this book in 2001 Antal Szerb 1901 1945 was a writer scholar critic and translator born to Jewish parents but baptised Catholic Multilingual e lived in Hungary France Italy and England and after graduating in German and English Biggles In The Antarctic he rapidly establishedimself as a prolific scholar publishing books on drama and poetry studies of Ibsen and Blake and An Unofficial Encyclopedia of Strategy for Fortniters histories of English and Hungarian literature At the age of 39 Szerb wrote an authoritative History of World Literature He wroteis first novel The Pendragon Legend in 1934 followed by Journey by Moonlight in 1937 and The ueen s Necklace in 1943 These and a collection of The Ausar Auset Nutrition Handbook his short stories Love in a Bottle are also published in English by Pushkin Press Szerb was killed in a concentration camp in January 1945At the end of the Pushkin Press edition in Len Rix s translator s notee mentions that this is the book that all Hungarians read as students which reinforces one of my burgeoning beliefs Hungarians Girls Und Panzer, vol. 1 have got great taste55 For example Seven Terrors by Selvedin Avdi The Trigger Hunting the Assassin Who Brought the World to War by Tim Butcher Beware of Pity by Stefan Zweig Dostoevsky Notes from Underground by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Between the Woods and the Water A Time of Gifts by Patrick Leigh Fermor I recommend them all Self DiscoveryI m not sureow well I can review this it was the right book at The Wrong Time Though The wrong time though the that it was able to sustain my interest for over a week when I could only manage a few pages a day speaks well for it But ow much better if I COULD HAVE GIVEN IT THE SPACE IT NEEDSWHILE could ave given it the space it needswhile the same time reading uickly enough to appreciate its grand formal arch I would La Vilaine Lulu have made a point of noting down Szerb s marvelous observations on life death and Italian culture though I am pretty sure that I could look now at almost any page and find something worth uoting In short I think this is probably an excellent book and regret that I was not in a position to enjoy it fullyPublished in 1937 by a Hungarian writer who was later to die in the Holocaust the novel is nonetheless not overtly political The death and displacement that it deals with are psychological rather than literal though there is aint that the existential Angst of the central character may be the symbolic reflection of an unstable Zeitgeist Certainly you can forget the Alan Furst resonances of the title enhanced by the dark almost monochrome cover painting on the NYRB edition But look at the detail of that painting by the Spanish artist Federico Beltr n Masses I Becoming Daddys Cow: A Twisted Taboo

closely entwined in the story and the novel makes significant use of its Italian settings than almost anything I can think of And then there is that brief opening paragraph On the train everything
