I think I am going to have to get this book as it sounds so intriguing. And having recently read a book by Karinthy's son, Ferenc, I'm quite intrigued by both...and, increasingly in Hungarian literature as a whole.
Stewart, I think you'll love the book. I'll definitely have to read Ferenc's book. I'm glad to see your blog and I'll definitely add you to my soon-to-exist blogroll.
Thanks. When I see it, I'll be sure to snap it up. Regarding blogrolls, I doubt you'll be seeing much extra traffic from it now, but I've recently added your RSS feed, along with many others, to World Literature Forum, so that posts here get made there, linking back to here.
