This selection of Antal Szerb's stories and novellas, set first in a quasi-mythical past and then in the London and Paris of the Thirties, provides an exhilarating guide to the writer's development, from precocious beginnings to a masterful maturity.
In these unforgettable tales-two of which are new to this edition-Szerb displays his irrepressible love of life and the gentle irony that became his hallmark.
"Here you have Szerb in miniature... revealing his multi-faceted genius." - Nicholas Lezard, Guardian
