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. Sorry but this was one of those really abstract fantastical compilations I didn t understand though I would think that the author loves food in particular fine dining a lot because a lot of the stories involve very elaborate descriptions of hearty Eastern European food in particular meats stews and soupsI completely was lost for this book And it didn t help that I waited for this book a long time even failing to get it once when I went to the library just for it and the second time paying to reserve it Too far out for my simple mind and I felt even worse reading about the fact that the author was living in poverty with his family most of his life and even had to self publish this book to submit it for a an award in the end he spent most of his prize money on publication and all its peripherals
