A story in snapshots
Judit Szaniszló’s book is like an Eastern European Bridget Jones’s Diary. The world of a thirty-something woman in Hungary unfolds from this book, with familiar, everyday problems – loneliness, relationships, life in an office – presented from a fresh and original perspective. Szaniszló, who is also a blogger, writes clear and simple stories in a style that is immediately accessible and yet of high literary quality – one reviewer dubbed it as ‘a literary reality show.’ These are cheeky, acerbic and sensitive stories, leaving the reader curious as to what will become of the protagonist, with whom it is easy to identify and whom it is easy to like.
