George Konra¡d (1933- ) grew up amidst the horrors of fascism and the Second World War, and narrowly escaped the Nazi concentration camps. He saw the Germans leave Budapest, only to be replaced by the Russians. He fought the Soviet tanks in the 1956 uprising, was imprisoned and censored for his writing, and fled abroad a number of times, but always returned to his homeland. He has worked as a social worker, editor, and sociologist, and is considered Hungary's pre-eminent essayist and novelist.
The author of many books, including The Case Worker and The Loser, KonrÃ¡d lives in Budapest.
Ivan Sanders teaches literature at Columbia University. He has translated novels by MilÃ¡n FÃ¼st and PÃ©ter NÃ¡das, as well.
