About the Author

Sandor Marai was born in Kassa, in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in 1900, and died in San Diego, California, in 1989. He rose to fame as one of the leading literary novelists in Hungary in the 1930s. Profoundly antifascist, he survived the war, but persecution by the Communists drove him from the country in 1948, first to Italy, then to the United States.

Reviews

""Portraits of a Marriage"...is brilliant in the acuity of its observations, its unremitting intelligence...Marai gives voice to a vanished world in a chorus that is both eulogy and manifesto." --The New York Times Book Review"Deeply satisfying...I wonder why I had never read him before." --Michael Korda, The Daily Beast"This autopsy of a failed marriage shows a virtuosic control of character and tone meaningfully set against the ossification of the fin de siecle Austro-Hungarian empire. . . What emerges is a cubist portrait of a harsh love and a dying society, elegantly paced and delightfully contradictory. . . With each new voice [Marai] builds suspense and reveals new layers and twists to this tale. Suffused with nostalgia and regret, the book evokes and examines both the nature of longing and the decline of a great empire." --"PW "(starred review)
