Sándor Márai

Ruminating on that is The Gate that gets you into The Way. Originally published in and now rediscovered bravi international acclaim, this taut and exquisitely structured novel by the Hungarian master Sandor Marai conjures the melancholy glamour of a decaying empire and the disillusioned wisdom of its last heirs. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. I cannot say enough about the sandlr of reading this book except to say it is one that I will long remember and that I must seek out more of this amazing author’s work.

The human night is filled with the crouching forms of dreams, desires, vanities, self-interest, mad love, envy, and the thirst for revenge, as the desert night conceals the puma, sajdor hawk and the jackal.

In addition to the moments of visual beauty, there are long passages of metaphysics to be found within these pages. Blah blah blah put on a puffed up high horse pedestal.

It takes Sandor Marai pages to pose his question, and another 70 pages to say that he doesn’t need sandorr hear the answer. Barring these minor causes of botheration, Embers is near perfect.

And the howling desolateness of the landscape supplements this way of life, this stubbornness, this isolation which could feed upon, energize and concern itself with one passion, mqrai, loss and sadness and in the end an unanswered question.

But are facts or words for that matter enough to condemn a friend, almost a brother, for betrayal? But then it has to be.

I always thought there had to be a more plausible way to talk about differences among human beings, something other than the divisions of race, class, education, nationality. E la tensione cresce pagina dopo pagina.

Patty (Italy)’s review of Le braci

It has absolutely no profanity or explicit sex in it. It’s an easy enough read, full of the philosophical queries and conclusions of its aged General about the meaning of life, love, honor, killing, obligation, M-M friendship.


It also enclosed memories as if they were the dead, memories that lurked in damp corners the way mushrooms, bats, rats, and beetles lurk in the mildewed cellars of old houses. E’ da tempo che mi faceva l’occhiolino dalll scaffale next reads e oggi non ho resistito. Affiorano dubbi, sospetti e tensioni legati alla relazione che sandro hanno avuto con la stessa donna, moglie di uno dei due, e a un episodio, inatteso e scioccante, che li ha visti protagonisti. It lies in the pall of gloom cast by the shadow of some tragedy unspoken of, lurking in the dark, cobwebbed nooks and corners of a secluded castle, the relentless flow of time the sense of which the book tries to capture quite successfully and in the hollowness of life itself.

In Embers, two boys forge the best kind of friendship, two young men test the toughest kind of friendship and two old men relive the only marao of friendship. E io ho iniziato a cercare e a recuperare altro di Marai. Henrik chiede se desidera che leggano insieme il messaggio di Krisztina… Henrik con gesto lento butta il libretto nella brace che si arroventa, si anima e lambisce la sua preda.
