        Sátántangó. [Satantango.]

      Magvet?, Budapest 1985 - First edition of Krasznahorkai's debut novel. Title page printed in red and black. In original cloth, with illustrated dust jacket, designed by Pál Deim. 333, (3) p. "Devastating, enthralling for every minute of its seven hours. I'd be glad to see it every year for the rest of my life." - Susan Sontag. "Laszló Krasznahorkai's Hungarian novel, published in 1985, is the source of Béla Tarr's 415-minute black and white masterpiece of the same title, adapted with the author and released about a decade later perhaps the greatest Hungarian film I've seen. We already have a subsequent novel by the same author in English, 'The Melancholy of Resistance', pointing to a stylistic similarity between Krasznahorkai and Thomas Bernhard, but something tells me that 'Sátántangó' is even better: a ferocious piece of sarcasm, traversing the same day from various viewpoints like a Faulkner novel while recounting the last bitter gasps of a failed farm collective and everything its members do to betray one another." - Jonathan Rosenbaum about "Sátántangó". László Krasznahorkai (b. 1955) Hungarian novelist and screenwriter. Honoured with numerous literary prizes and the most prestigious Hungarian state award the Kossuth Prize. In original cloth, with illustrated dust jacket, designed by Pál Deim First edition of Krasznahorkai's debut novel. Title page printed in red and black [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Icelandic River Saga

      Saga, Canada, 1985, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good, First EditionSize: 4to - over 9?" - 12" tall, 838 pages. "Even though the geographic limitations of this work are prescribed by the boundaries of a specific Icelandic settlement, its general scope and extensive background research defy this narrow categorization. The author not only traces the history of the settlement itself, from its beginnings to recent times, he includes a great deal of material of potential interest to those who may have only tenuous links with the Icelandic cultural heritage, at the same time establishing ties between thousands of Icelandic-North Americans and their native Iceland.... The author's disciplined approach has made the writing of this book an arduous task, but at the same time his stringent demands upon himself have enhanced the scholarly merit of his work immeasurably. Virtually unaided, the author has now completed and seen through to publication a more meticulous piece of research than any previously undertaking in the field of Icelandic ethnic history." - Haraldur Bessason, Professor and Head , Department of Icelandic Language and Literature, University of Manitoba. As is common with this title, the binding of this copy is over-matched by the considerable weight of the book, resulting in the binding being relatively loose/tender but still intact. Gift greetings atop front free endpaper. Average wear. A worthy copy of this treasured reference.
