Under the frog : a black comedy by Tibor Fischer( Book )
38 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and held by 644 libraries worldwide
"The Hungarians have an expression for the worst place in the world to be: "under the frog's ass down a coal mine.""--BOOK JACKET. "Under the Frog, Tibor Fischer's brilliant recreation of postwar Eastern Europe, was the surprise literary success of London last year, where it won the Betty Trask Award and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. It is the very witty and very sad account of two young men who survive the chaos of communism as part of a traveling basketball team. Set in Hungary from 1944 to 1956, the story follows the fortunes of the team in pursuit of sex and the avoidance of work."--BOOK JACKET. "Exuberant and energetic, Tibor Fischer's first novel is a fascinating and oblique commentary on everyday life during those dramatic years. Fischer writes with the verve and irreverence of Martin Amis, but the world he recreates is one we know from George Konrad and Milan Kundera."--BOOK JACKET
