Product Description

László Krasznahorkai was born in Gyula, Hungary, in 1954. He has written five novels and won numerous prizes, including the Best Translated Book Award in Fiction, twice, the International Booker Prize in 2015 for his oeuvre, and the 2019 National Book Award for his final novel, <i>Baron Wenckheim's Homecoming</i>.<p>Translated by George Szirtes<br>From the winner of the Man Booker International Prize<br><br>In the darkening embers of a Communist utopia, life in a desolate Hungarian town has come to a virtual standstill. Flies buzz, spiders weave, water drips and animals root desultorily in the barnyard of a collective farm. <br><br>But when the charismatic Irimias - long-thought dead - returns, the villagers fall under his spell. Irimias sets about swindling the villagers out of a fortune that might allow them to escape the emptiness and futility of their existence. He soon attains a messianic aura as he plays on the fears of the townsfolk and a series of increasingly brutal events unfold.</p>Krasznahorkai's extraordinary first novel is back - and more devilish than ever.A modern masterpiece that manages to speak both of its time and to transcend it altogetherA monster of a novel: compact, cleverly constructed, often exhilarating
