"A hypnotic, hauntingly beautiful first novel from Szilárd Borbély, one of the most important authors of contemporary Hungarian literature, that depicts the world of unimaginable poverty, deprivation, and cruelty experienced by a partly-Jewish family in a rural Hungarian village in the late 1960's and early 1970's"--

Alle kennen sich im kleinen Dorf im Nordosten Ungarns. Es sind die 1960er-Jahre. Die Verwandten, die damals mitgemacht haben, wohnen noch im Dorf als der jüdische Ladenbesitzer zur Überraschung aller aus dem Lager in seine geplünderte Wohnung zurückkehrt. Und hier wächst der Erzähler auf, ein kleiner Junge, der früh lernt, wie man Tiere tötet und wie man mit dem Misstrauen der Leute umgeht. Seine Eltern sind keine Bauern, sondern kommen von anderswo, so wie der Zigeuner Messias ... Mit einem biografischen Anhang der Übersetzerinnen
Los desposeídos by Szilárd Borbély( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A finales de los años sesenta, una familia lucha por sobrevivir a la miseria en un pequeño pueblo fronterizo de Hungría. El hijo de once años se evade del frío y el hambre imaginando un universo propio en el que gobiernan los números primos mientras observa con todo detalle el mundo que le rodea. Se trata de un mundo embrutecido que comparte con un hermano pequeño al que debe cuidar, una hermana mayor cuya ropa aprovecha, una madre que amenaza con suicidarse y un padre que se gasta en alcohol el poco dinero que gana. Gracias a su relato reconstruimos la historia de esta familia estigmatizada por los vecinos, así como la historia de un pueblo, un país y un tiempo olvidados. Esta novela de incalculable valor se ha convertido en un fenómeno literario en toda Europa. En ella, Szilárd Borbély desarrolla una comprensión sin precedentes no solo del que fue su propio mundo, sino también de la Hungría de mediados del siglo XX, un país traumatizado por los combates de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, el regreso de los supervivientes de los gulags y la expropiación de las tierras por parte de los comunistas. --
The dispossessed by Szilárd Borbély( Recording )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A literary sensation on its original publication in Hungary, this hypnotic, hauntingly beautiful first novel from the acclaimed, award-winning poet and author Szila?rd Borbe?ly depicts the poverty and cruelty experienced by a partly-Jewish family in a rural village in the late 1960s and early 1970s.In a tiny village in northeast Hungary, close to the Romanian border, a young, unnamed boy warily observes day-to-day life and chronicles his family's struggles to survive. Like most of the villagers, his family is desperately poor, but their situation is worse than most--they are ostracized because of his father's Jewish heritage and his mother's connections to the Kulaks, who once owned land and supported the fascist Horthy regime before it was toppled by Communists. With unflinching candor, the little boy's observations are related through a variety of narrative voices--crude diatribes from his alcoholic father, evocative and lyrical tales of the past from his grandparents, and his own simple yet potent prose. Together, these accounts reveal not only the history of his family but that of Hungary itself, through the physical and psychic traumas of two World Wars to the country's treatment of Jews, both past and present. Drawing heavily on Borbe?ly's memories of his own childhood, The Dispossessed is an extraordinarily realistic novel. Raw and often brutal, yet glimmering with hope, it is the crowning achievement of an uncompromising talent

Berlin-Hamlet by Szilárd Borbély( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and Hungarian and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Berlin-Hamlet evokes a stroll through one of the phantasmagoric shopping arcades described in Walter Benjamin's Passagen-Werk--but instead of the delirious image fragments of nineteenth-century European culture, we pass by disembodied scraps of written text, remnants as ghostly as their authors: primarily Franz Kafka but also Benjamin himself or the Hungarian poets Attila Jozsef or Ern Szep. Paraphrases and reworked quotations, drawing upon the vanished prewar legacy, particularly its German Jewish aspects, appear in sharp juxtaposition with images of post-1989 Berlin frantically rebuilding itself in the wake of German unification"--

Kafkas Sohn : Prosa aus dem Nachlass by Szilárd Borbély( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Szilárd Borbély, dessen Romandebüt Die Mittellosen in Ungarn, Deutschland und vielen anderen Ländern ein literarisches Ereignis war, wollte seinen nächsten großen erzählerischen Text Franz Kafka widmen. Die Sammlung von Bruchstücken, aus dem Nachlass veröffentlicht, ursprünglich zur Publikation bestimmt, bezieht ihre Intensität aus der leidenschaftlichen Suche des Autors nach sich selbst und der eigenen Stimme. Ein Essay über die Bedeutung Kafkas in der ungarischen Gegenwartsliteratur im Allgemeinen und im Werk Szilárd Borbélys im Besonderen ergänzt den Band. Kafkas Sohn, das ist ein junger ungarischer Schriftsteller, der lernt, im Schreiben seine Heimat zu finden. Die Sprache nennt er einen Friedhof, der sich die Toten einverleibt; er will Geschichten schreiben, die »meine eigenen Spuren, die ich zwischen den Wörtern zurücklassen könnte, auslöschen«. Kafka als Bruder, als Projektionsfigur, als Lehrer, als Erzähler, als Mensch der Verzweiflung, der Krankheit, der unglücklichen Liebe. Borbély nimmt Kafkas »Brief an den Vater« als Folie, sich mit der eigenen Vaterbeziehung auseinanderzusetzen. Die Prosastücke, formal hier und da an jüdische Geschichten und Legenden angelehnt, passagenweise an Kertész’ Galeerentagebuch erinnernd, sind Selbstbekenntnis und Vermächtnis in einem
