'This epic Hungarian novel, absorbing both for its exploration of human nature and its study of the decline of the Austro-Hungarian Empire ... weaves social and political themes into Banffy's powerful tale' * Daily Telegraph * 'A masterpiece. This very readable translation makes a wonderful book accessible to many more people' * New Statesman * 'A very romantic book set in Transylvania during the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire before the First World war. It's full of balls and hunting parties, snow and politics. It's totally absorbing and I'm looking forward to reading the next two books in the trilogy' -- Martha Kearney * My Six Best Books, Daily Express * 'My great find of the year is a reprint of the magnificent trilogy, set in pre-war Transylvania by Miklos Banffy ... which stands comparison with the great Russian and French masters. Banffy vies with Tolstoy for sweep, Pasternak for romance and Turgenev for evocation of nature; his fiction is packed with irresistible social detail and crammed with superb characters: it is gloriously, addictively, compulsively readable' -- Caroline Moor * Books of the Year, Seven * 'A genuine case of a rediscovered classic. The force of Banffy's enthusiasm produces an effect rather like that of the best Trollope novels - but coming from a past world that now seems excitingly exotic' * TLS * 'One of the most celebrated and ambitious classics of Hungarian literature' -- Jan Morris
