About this Item

Rare first edition of the second published book by the recent Hungarian Nobel laureate. Kertesz's first book, Sorstalansag [Fateless], appeared in 1975 and has recently been filmed. He received little public acclaim however, even in Hungary, until winning the Nobel Prize in 2002. Thus his early works (indeed anything published before 2002) are very scarce and this volume particularly so as it has not yet been reissued in the collected works edition and the first remains the only published edition to date. This 224pp book comprises 2 long novellas, the title story & 'Detektivtortenet'. Hardbound in imitation cloth with illustrative vignette to front cover and attractive pen & ink Chagall-like illustration to dw with photo portrait of the author to front flap. Minimal edge wear to dw else a fine copy throughout. Bookseller Inventory # 2794

Store Description

I have recently moved the majority of my stock (c.20,000 volumes) to a beautiful new book-house in Szeged, Hungary. Most of these have been in storage for a number of years and have never been offered for sale online. My stock is hand-picked and consists principally of literary first editions in English, French, German and Hungarian. Over the coming months and years I will be uploading these books to ABE, launching a Hungarian booksearch service and starting my own publishing company. Watch this space as there will be some real rarities for sale. Please contact me with any wants in the field of 19th & 20th century literature as I may have just what you want in stock.
