Lordy! A Sándor Márai blog! (via the Literary Saloon.)

Sándor Márai (1900-1989) was a Hungarian novelist of the 20th century. Deeply antifascist and anticommunist, he left Hungary in 1948 and never returned. His many works (including dozens of novels and a number of memoirs) languished in obscurity throughout his lifetime because Hungarian works are not often translated and he refused to allow their publication in Hungary while Soviet rule remained in effect. He committed suicide in San Diego in 1989, but his works are recently being rediscovered and his rightful place in the literary pantheon reassessed.
