A wonderful collection of well-written prose and various tidbits of knowledge. After living in Hungary for 6 months and getting to know the culture and the people, I can definitely attest that it is very Hungarian, indeed, in its presentation of topics and views.
My favorites were "thoughts from the cellar," "hidden talent," "what is art?" and "triplets in óbuda."
