Synopsis

Enthralling stories from the celebrated author of The Transylvanian Trilogy

'A great storyteller' Guardian

Back from Troy, the 'divine' Helen looks with fresh eyes at her foul-mouthed hero-husband; a girl in a mountain village seeks reassurance about her arranged marriage; a drunken mandarin invites the devil to tea; and a German princess discovers that people actually drink goat's milk. These delightful tales exhibit Bánffy's customary blend of high seriousness and subtle humour, his rich imagination and his remarkably wide-ranging sympathies.

Appearing in English for the first time, in finely nuanced translations by the prize-winning Len Rix, The Enchanted Night furthers the writer's growing reputation as one of the most compelling European writers of the twentieth century.
