Az élet álom

Az élet álom review ´ 103 read & download Az élet álom Nd dispossessed these tales of love food death and sex are ironic and wise about the human condition and the futility of life and display fully Krudy's wit and mastery of the form. For a relatively short book this took me a very long time to read It comprises ten short stories that the destitute Hungarian author selected from his own works in order to have something to submit for a prize he d been told he had a than good chance of winning which he did apparently but the prize money was shared and distributed over two years and he had to make a contribution to the poor out of itKrudy writes about situations from his own life One of the characters writes stories for newspapers as did Krudy The action such as it is is set almost exclusively in taverns a place where Krudy spent much of his time The opening story concerns a casino Krudy was also a gambler You get the picture And that s about all there is to it besides the author s liking for surreal endings For example the best story here The Green Ace ends with one half of a young man s hair moustache and beard turning dove white I have no problem with books in which nothing much happens this is true of Bernhard s novels which I love What I found hard going was that the bulk of the narrative consisted of tedious descriptions of gourmands lunches and alcoholics benders It was of passing interest to learn about Hungarian inn cuisine of the early 20th century sour lungs pickled cabbage beef on the bone and gravy play a huge part in it but this story ingredient was boiled to death For all that some of the descriptions were pleasing such as the following exampleMushrooms just happen to be born old for they have a chance to mull things over before they emerge from the soil whether it s in the cellar the greenhouse or the woods Yes mushrooms are little old men even as the forester s laughing daughters stumble upon them after a rainy nightThis collection feels very old fashioned compared to other writing that was coming out of Hungary at the time the work of Frigyes Karinthy for example Apparently Krudy wrote several novels before his writing fell out of favour in the 1920s and 30s On this reading I can t say I d be greatly tempted by them even if I could get hold of copies

If you re reading Krudy for the first time and deciding between Sunflower or this book of short stories go for Sunflower This collection of short stories leaves something to be desired It lacks the kind of dreamy and descriptive voice that hypnotized me in Sunflower Out of all the stories the most Krudyesue passages were the ones about old Taban in The Green Ace I found myself highlighting several long chunks of text in that one The stories also leave you hungry on another level If you re a foodie you will appreciate the endless gastro science especially if you re a true carnivore You ll crave Hungarian dishes travel to several cafes serving a dizzying amount of food learn about the art of cabbage trampling properly spear your bread with a knife meet the inn keepers and waitersPeople had only one desire in life to sit down at a comfortable table in a restaurant and eat their way through the items listed on the menu I think Krudy must have written these stories while eating in these very places Wandering from restaurant to cafe Stuffing himself full of cracklings and red peppers Staining his notebooks with ink pork fat and bread crumbs
