9781550960556: Far From Nothing

Ripe with love, money, and power, the story of 35-year-old Rudolf—set in a fast-paced, urban environment—begs the question Do we only think we exist? Rudolf and his wife work day and night hoping for a better life—he is a philosophy graduate student and the manager of a car dealership. He also keeps up a heart-wrenching relationship with the chic Wanda. Then there is Nina, who studies logic but is secretly a prostitute, and Alfred, owner of a car-leasing company, seemingly upright, but actually an embezzler. Each character conceals something. Be it in Hungary or North America, the craving for existential clarity remains strong.

Review:

"The bravery of the author is at the end, when he returns the reader to the beginning, giving him the chance to fathom how many human dilemmas have been raised . . . this book is a must read."  —The Nation

"At the heart of the urban dream is the automotive showroom, where connivance and culture collide, giving rise in this novel to that most unlikely of rigors – existential clarity." —Barry Callaghan, author, The Way the Angel Spreads Her Wings
