And Other StoriesBook - 2005
With stories such as "Tales of Hungarian Resistance" and "Four Uncles," Dobozy reveals the cultural no-man's land that many children of immigrants are trapped within. Other stories, including "The Inert Landscapes of György Ferenc" and "Last Notes," envision the complex connections between artistic vision and madness. "Into the Ring," a comic masterpiece, delivers a one-two satirical punch to the institution of marriage, as a couple settles its conflicts in the boxing ring.
These are stories shot through with wit, profundity, a love of the absurd and a wide-ranging imagination. Tamas Dobozy is a writer to watch and to savour.
