    Life is a Dream apparently the last book of Krudy's published in his lifetime is a bit of a letdown after Sindbad and Sunflower We have lots of description of people eating and drinking and preparing food cabbage marrow sour lungs noodle soup etc but not so much the insight into our dreams desires and wickedness that Krudy displayed in his other books nor the fantastical prose excursions they engendered There are still hilarious descriptio

Life is a Dream 1931 is Gyula Krudy's magical collection of ten short stories Creating a world where editors shoot themselves after a hard day's brunching men attend duels incogni The fact that Deszo Kosztolanyi nominated him for the Hungarian PEN Club should give you indication that you re dealing with an extremely talented writer here Having spent the last year completely immersed in Hungarian literature I ve come to the understanding that good writer in Hungary means many things It means you re a REALLY good writer you are unknown otherwise you are not an aloof academic you seem to think that most people are reading your works in front of a table populated with drinks food and cigars and you have read just about every Hungarian writer as they have Krudy is a major talent with either longer novels or short stories such as these He has all the style and wit of Antal Szerb but doesn t bother with Szerb s polite restraint or labrynthian intrigues Krudy is like Moricz in his observational prowess and Kosztolanyi in his playful style Krudy is also a bit fey and crepuscular like Schulz and Kafka at times Krudy uses food like the Cz film master Jan Svankmejer to serve as a point of creative departure If you can recall one of many moustaches soaked in beers and smeared into the back of a hand you can understand how fooddrink works in Krudy I will admit a bias in that I love books that involve people loving beer Rabelais Kosztolanyi Erofeev and promote Benjamin Franklin s notion that beer is living proof that god loves us and wants us to be happy Krudy states There is a mystery about beer that will never be fathomed by the mind of mere mortals The same applies to food as is the case in the opening story that involves a man eating the food that he supposes his dueling foe would eat to begin the process of vanuishing and consuming his enemy It s from the soil up and out with Krudy Another KrudySvankmeyer point of similarity is the Archimboldo ness of their comestible considerations food and drink makes the man and appreciating these component elements of the human form is appreciating life itself Krudy is also uite funny whilst being a bit dark like Schulz and even the Marx Brothers there is an observational wit to his humor that is hard not to love If someone told me that Krudy spent his finest moments chasing blonds around fountains and pulling faces over superfluous ill fitting spectacles I wouldn t be surprised In fact if there s a heaven and I get there and I meet Groucho I am going to attempt to win his favor by lending him knowing I ll never get it back being the greater part of honor my collection of Hungarian 20th Century writers Any man that loved Ring Lardner James Farrell and James Thurber would certainly love Moricz Szerb Kosztolanyi and Krudy This is lighter reading than Krudy s Sunflower short novel vs short stories but no less magical and enjoyable
