9781908968425: Love in a Bottle and Other Stories (Pushkin Collection)

This selection of Antal Szerb's stories and novellas, set first in a quasi-mythical past and then in the London and Paris of the Thirties, provides an exhilarating guide to the writer's development, from precocious beginnings to a masterful maturity.
In these unforgettable tales—two of which are new to this edition—Szerb displays his irrepressible love of life and the gentle irony that became his hallmark.

About the Author:

Antal Szerb was born in Budapest in 1901. Though of Jewish descent, he was baptised at an early age and remained a lifelong Catholic. He rapidly established himself as a formidable scholar, through studies of Ibsen and Blake and histories of English, Hungarian and world literature. He was a prolific essayist and reviewer, ranging across all the major European languages. Debarred by successive Jewish laws from working in a university, he was subjected to increasing persecution, and finally murdered in a forced labour camp in 1945. Pushkin Press publishes his novels The Pendragon Legend, Oliver VII and his masterpiece Journey by Moonlight, as well as the historical study The Queen's Necklace and Love in a Bottle and Other Stories.

Review:

"His love affair with literature was passionate, intense, and serious, but for all that it was never humorless, and it never lost the flirtatious and giddy quality of an adolescent crush. Reading Szerb on literature—reading Szerb at all—is like watching a lover dote on the object of his affections. . . It is the disparity between literary perfection and drab actuality that motivates us, in Szerb’s view, to improve our world, to question its assumptions and tear at its established fabrics." - Becca Rothfield, The New Republic

"Sophisticated, elegant and unpredictable." - Jonathan Keates, TLS

"A writer of immense subtlety and generosity... Can literary mastery be this quiet-seeming, this hilarious, this kind? Antal Szerb is one of the great European writers." - Ali Smith

"Antal Szerb belongs with the master novelists of the 20th century." - Paul Bailey

"Szerb is a master novelist whose powers transcend time and language." - Nicholas Lezard, Guardian

"A very charming, humorous and intelligent man, familiar ... with the entire culture of Western Europe." - Simone de Beauvoir

"The Hungarian master... left a scholarly body of criticism as well as fiction, including his masterpiece, Journey By Moonlight (1937) and some glorious stories gathered here." - Eileen Battersby, Irish Times
