About this product
- DescriptionA New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year Parallel Stories is a vel of extraordinary scope and depth, a masterwork that traces the fate of myriad Europeans--Hungarians, Jews, Germans, Gypsies--across the treacherous years of the mid-twentieth century. Three unusual men are at the heart of the vel: Hans von Wolkenstein, whose German mother has ties to the fascist-Nazi collaboration of the 1940s; Agost Lippay Lehr, whose influential father has served Hungary's different political regimes for decades; and Andras Rott, who has his own dark record of mysterious activities abroad. Nadas weaves the social and political circumstances of their lives into a magnificent tapestry, aligning the uncanny parallels that link them across time and space. Fifteen years in the writing, and four in the translating, Parallel Stories is Peter Nadas's masterpiece--a daring and momentous vel from one of the great writers of our time.
