1 Tulips The night before, I stuck the alarm clock under my pillow so only I would hear it ring and Mother wouldn't wake up, but as it turned out I was awake even before it went off, that's how wound up I was for the surprise. After taking my extra-special nickel-plated Chinese flashlight off the table, I pulled the clock from under the pillow and lit it up, it was quarter to five. I pressed the button so it wouldn't go off, and then I took the clothes I had put on the back of my chair the night before and dressed in a hurry, careful not to make a sound. While pulling on my pants I accidentally kicked the chair, which luckily didn't topple over but only thumped against the table beside it. Carefully I opened the door to my room, but I knew it wouldn't creak because the day before I'd rubbed the hinges with grease. I went over to the cupboard and slowly pulled out the middle drawer and removed the big tailor's shears Mother always used to cut my hair, and then I opened the lock on our apartment door and slipped out, quiet as could be, not even hurrying until I reached the first turn in the stairwell, where I broke into a run. By the time I reached the bottom of the stairs and stepped outside our apartment block, I was warm all over, and that's how I went toward the little park, whose flower bed, next to the iron spout where people went for spring water, had the most beautiful tulips in town. By then we'd been without Father for more than half a year, though he was supposed to go away for only a week to a research station by the sea on some urgent business, and when he said goodbye to me he told me how sorry he was that he couldn't take me with him because at that time of year, in late autumn, the sea is a truly unforgettable sight, a lot fiercer than in summer, stirring up huge yellow waves and white foam as far as the eye can see. But no matter, he said, and he promised that once he got home he'd take me too, so I could have a look for myself, why, he just couldn't understand how it could be that I was already past ten years old and still had never seen the sea. But that's okay, he said, we'd make up for this along with everything else we'd make up for, no sense in rushing things, there would be plenty of time and more for everything because we had a whole life ahead of us, yes, this was one of Father's favorite sayings, and I never did quite get it, but then when he didn't come home after all, I thought about it a lot, and that farewell came to my mind a lot too, when I saw Father for the last time, when his colleagues came to get him with a gray van. I'd just come home from school when they were about to head off, if our last class of the day, earth science, hadn't been canceled I wouldn't even have met them, they were just getting into the van when I got there, they were in a real hurry, Father's colleagues didn't even want to let him talk to me, but then Father told them not to do this, they h Fiction Fiction eBook, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Budapest: Magveto. Hardcover. 9632702700 Very good in very good nicked dust jacket. In Hungarian. Signed by prior owner George Feyer on title page, bookplate on front free endpaper. Feyer was a Hungarian Pianist in NYC. . Very Good. 1976., Magveto, 1976, Boston. 2008. Houghton Mifflin. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 264 pages. April 2008. hardcover. GYÖRGY DRAGOMÁN is thirty-four years old. A Beckett scholar and film critic, he has also translated works by Beckett, Joyce, Ian McEwan, Irvine Welsh, and Mickey Donnelly into Hungarian. Awarded Hungary’s prestigious Sándor Márai Prize, THE WHITE KING, translated from Hungarian by Paul Olchváry, is loosely based on Dragomán’s experiences growing up in 1980s Romania under Ceausescu. He lives in Budapest with his wife, a poet, and their two young sons. PAUL OLCHVARY has translated many books from Hungarian, including Karoly Pap’s novel AZAREL (Steerforth), and has received translation awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, PEN America, and Hungary’s Milan Fust Foundation. His shorter translations have appeared in the HUNGARIAN QUARTERLY and the PARIS REVIEW.

Jacket design by Michaela Sullivan. 9780618945177. keywords: 41381. inventory # 12819. FROM THE PUBLISHER - An international sensation, this startling and heartbreaking debut introduces us to precocious eleven-year-old Djata, whose life in the totalitarian state he calls home is about to change forever. Djata doesn’t know what to make of the two men who lead his father away one day, nor does he understand why his mother bursts into tears when he brings her tulips on her wedding anniversary. He does know that he must learn to fill his father’s shoes, even though among his friends he is still a boy: fighting with neighborhood bullies, playing soccer on radioactive grass, having inappropriate crushes, sneaking into secret screening rooms, and shooting at stray cats with his gun-happy grandfather. But the random brutality of Djata’s world is tempered by the hilarious absurdity of the situations he finds himself in, by his enduring faith in his father’s return, and by moments of unexpected beauty, hope, and kindness. Structured as a series of interconnected stories propelled by the energy of Dragomán’s riveting prose, the chapters of THE WHITE KING collectively illuminate the joys and humiliations of growing up, while painting a multifaceted and unforgettable portrait of life in an oppressive state and its human cost. And as in the works of Mark Haddon, David Mitchell, and Marjane Satrapi, Djata’s child’s-eye view lends power and immediacy to his story, making us laugh and ache in recognition and reminding us all of our shared humanity.
