Journey by Moonlight
Mihaly, the son of a bourgeois family in Budapest, is haunted by nostalgia for his bohemian youth. He seeks escape in his marriage to Erzsi. On honeymoon in Italy they are accidentally separated and Mihaly starts a mystical and dazzling journey, first in archaic Umbria and then plunging into a sensual Rome, where death and eroticism converge.

Would have been 5 stars save for the authors problematic view towards women, though he can be forgiven slightly as he was born in 1901. Read full review
