ÁDÁM BODOR: Back to the Long-eared Owl

Short stories

bodor_vissza_a_fulesbagolyhozSuppressed passions, ready to erupt like a volcano, humiliation, and quiet hopelessness, written in a dream-like yet precise prose. In Bodor’s stories, there are no false tones or super f luous sentences and adjectives. Everything is in place, and mercilessly so. This is a mysterious world, hidden under our threshold, yet all too familiar and real. Bodor’s characters and scenes are alive: with a few words or sentences, this author gives a staggeringly authentic picture about almost anything: love, misery, human gestures and inhumanity. This collection of Bodor’s stories proves that Bodor is an outstanding figure of contemporary literature.
