About the Author

Antal Szerb (1901-1945) was born into a cultivated Budapest family of Jewish descent. Graduating in German and English, he rapidly established himself as a prolific scholar, publishing books on drama and poetry, studies of Ibsen and Blake, and histories of English, Hungarian, and world literature. His novels, available in Pushkin Press, include The Pendragon Legend (1934), set in London and Wales, Journey by Moonlight (1937), The Queen's Necklace (1943), and Oliver VII (1943). He was beaten to death in the forced-labour camp at Balf in January 1945.


"Szerb belongs with the master novelists of the 20th century" PAUL BAILEY Daily Telegraph "May Szerb"s re-entry into our literary pantheon be definitive" ALBERTO MANGUEL Financial Times
