Staff Reviews

I was completely awestruck by this book. Szabó's writing is masterful, and the way she builds and bends the development of her two main characters and their relationship is completely fascinating. Truly dark without relying on being gruesome, this book is like its own doorway into a world full of suspicion, derision, and manners--by no means a happy book, but one which will wrap you up in its spell right from the first page.

— Jacob


This 1987 Hungarian novel in the modernist tradition combines emotionality and literary quality in the story of two women, a writer and her housekeeper.
