The forty-odd stories in Krisztina Tóth’s new volume all take place in Hungary today, with ordinary Hungarians, some fortunate, others less so, as characters. In her signature style – acute observation and precise description – Tóth illuminates nooks and crannies that we don’t usually get to look into. Her stories tell tales of poverty, illness, migration, the presence of the powers-that-be in human relations, the distressing fact of the lack of solidarity and graceful moments of solidarity. Panther’s Pomp is a collection of poignant scenes and stories that will hopefully contribute to making its readers better human beings.
