Budapest Girl


Product Description
Product Details


I love the writing: the honesty of it, the search that is always there, the courage to face hard truths and at the same time imagine others' lives with compassion. Elizabeth Smither A Hungarian exile of 1956 with a gift for poetry reflects on a Budapest childhood during World War Two. A complex family spanning the spectrum of Jews, peasants and urban middle class, plus the day-to-day struggle for survival in wartime, make for a memoir which takes us outside the present consumer culture into the heart of an authentic New Zealand artist. Paul Maunder Reading this book has made me smile and weep. I love the way it draws us into the world of childhood with a child's view of events. The writing is elegant and spirited, evoking strong images and emotion. It is the type of book a reader delights in reading and re-reading; dipping into passages for reflection, for the joy of wonderful writing and for the experiences it portrays. Paddy Richardson A remarkable memoir from a remarkable life. Powerful poetry and vivid prose unite in one woman's undertaking to engage the past. The written word punches out at you from every page, taking the reader on a grand tour of events that shaped the last century. Dana Wensley
