Or and 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.. Life is a Dream apparently the last book of Krudy s published in his lifetime is a bit of a letdown after Sindbad and Sunflower We have lots of description of people eating and drinking and preparing food cabbage marrow sour lungs noodle soup etc but not so much the insight into our dreams desires and wickedness that Krudy displayed in his other books nor the fantastical prose excursions they engendered There are still hilarious descriptions of people but aside from some ironies about people s deluded certainties about where their lives are headed and the accompanying judgments about the people around them in the first two stories these stories don t really have much meat on the bones

Life is a Dreamis Gyula Krudy's magical collection of ten short stories Creating a world where editors shoot themselves after a hard day's brunching men attend duels incognito and love. The fact that Deszo Kosztolanyi nominated him for the Hungarian PEN Club should give you indication that you re dealing with an extremely talented writer here Having spent the last year completely immersed in Hungarian literature I ve come to the understanding that good writer in Hungary means many things It means you re a REALLY good writer you are unknown otherwise you are not an aloof academic you seem to think that most people are reading your works in front of a table populated with drinks food and cigars and you have read just about every Hungarian writer as they have Krudy is a major talent with either longer novels or short stories such as these He has all the style and wit of Antal Szerb but doesn t bother with Szerb s polite restraint or labrynthian intrigues Krudy is like Moricz in his observational prowess and Kosztolanyi in his playful style Krudy is also a bit fey and crepuscular like Schulz and Kafka at times Krudy uses food like the Cz film master Jan Svankmejer to serve as a point of creative departure If you can recall one of many moustaches soaked in beers and smeared into the back of a hand you can understand how fooddrink works in Krudy I will admit a bias in that I love books that involve people loving beer Rabelais Kosztolanyi Erofeev and promote Benjamin Franklin s notion that beer is living proof that god loves us and wants us to be happy Krudy states There is a mystery about beer that will never be fathomed by the mind of mere mortals The same applies to food as is the case in the opening story that involves a man eating the food that he supposes his dueling foe would eat to begin the process of vanuishing and consuming his enemy It s from the soil up and out with Krudy Another KrudySvankmeyer point of similarity is the Archimboldo ness of their comestible considerations food and drink makes the man and appreciating these component elements of the human form is appreciating life itself Krudy is also uite funny whilst being a bit dark like Schulz and even the Marx Brothers there is an observational wit to his humor that is hard not to love If someone told me that Krudy spent his finest moments chasing blonds around fountains and pulling faces over superfluous ill fitting spectacles I wouldn t be surprised In fact if there s a heaven and I get there and I meet Groucho I am going to attempt to win his favor by lending him knowing I ll never get it back being the greater part of honor my collection of Hungarian 20th Century writers Any man that loved Ring Lardner James Farrell and James Thurber would certainly love Moricz Szerb Kosztolanyi and Krudy This is lighter reading than Krudy s Sunflower short novel vs short stories but no less magical and enjoyable

    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

    In Krudy's stories the divide between the dead and living seems to be almost in name or label only dead men carry on affairs living people spend all their time eating and drinking in taverns Nothing separates them; some are just dead

    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 di

    Short stories many of which can't really be called 'stories' examining the lives of working Hungarians through the food they are served and eat The proliferation of broths marrow bones and sour lungs give the collection a really earthy feeling with many pieces not resolving and the imminent and sometimes actual presence of death giving the book a dreamy uality Ten stories do give a feeling of being a 'bit samey' with the longer
