Lajos Zilahy (March 27, 1891 - December 1, 1974) was a Hungarian novelist and playwright. He became the Secretary General of Hungarian PEN but his liberal views placed him at odds, first with the right-wing Horthy regime and later with the post-war Communist government. Zilahy left Hungary in 1947 and was an exile in the USA. He completed A Dukay trilogy of novels (Century in Scarlet, The Dukays, The Angry Angel) chronicling the history of a fictitious Hungarian aristocratic family from the Napoleonic era to the middle of the twentieth century.
