About the author (2000)

SANDOR MARAI (pronounced SHAN-dor) was born in Kassa, in the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1900. He rose to fame as one of the leading literary novelists in Hungary in the 1930s. Profoundly antifascist, he survived WWII, but persecution by the Communists drove the his country in 1948, first to Italy and then to the United States. He committed suicide in San Diego in 1989. He is the author of a significant body of work, which Knopf is translating into English.

Albert Tezla authored An Introductory Bibliography to the Study of Hungarian Literature (1964), and was professor of English at the University of Minnesota, Duluth. The information in his most recent volume is derived from direct examination of original works and critical studies and a search through the holdings of eight United States libraries, the National Union Catalog of the Library of Congress, and fifteen European libraries, including the National Szechenyi Library, the Library of the Institute of Literary History, and the Library of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
