Life is a Dream Paperback
by Gyula Krudy
Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series
Life is a Dream (1931) is 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 lovers fall out over salad dressing, Life is a Dream is a comic, nostalgic, romantic and erotic glimpse into the Hungary of the early twentieth century.
Focussing on the poor 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.
