In a secluded woodland castle, an old General prepares to receive a rare visitor, a man who was once his closest friend but whom he has not seen in forty-one years.

An early novel from the great rediscovered Hungarian writer SAndor MArai, The Rebels is a haunting story of a group of alienated boys on the cusp of adult life'and possibly death'during World War I. It is the summer of 1918, and four boys approaching graduation are living in a ghost town bereft of fathers, uncles, and older brothers, who are off fighting at the front. The boys know they will very soon be sent to join their elders, and in their final weeks of freedom they begin acting out their frustrations and fears in a series of subversive games and petty thefts. But when they attract the attention of a stranger in town'an actor with a traveling theater company'their games, and their lives, begin to move in a direction they could not have predicted and cannot control, and one that reveals them to be strangers to one another. Resisting and defying adulthood, they find themselves still subject to its baffling power even in their attempted rebellion. From the Trade Paperback edition

From the author of EMBERS comes another masterpiece: an erotically charged novel about Casanova and the woman who finally defeated him. Sandor Marai, one of the leading Hungarian novelists, begins his story in 1756 when Giacomo Casanova, after having escaped from one of Venice's infamous jails, stops at the Italian village of Bolzano to rest, secure a loan to rebuild his life, and resume his art of seduction. But he's come to this village remembering a girl named Francesca, over whom he fought a duel with the duke of Parma, and lost.

Rodeado del bullicio de las numerosas familias que veranean en el concurrido Hotel Argentina, en Dubrovnik, Viktor Askenasi, respetado profesor del Instituto de Estudios Orientales de París, soporta a duras penas la asfixiante canícula de la costa dálmata. Cercano a la cincuentena, el profesor ha emprendido un viaje en solitario por el Mediterráneo movido por una inquietud que lo perturba desde siempre y que lo llevó, unos meses antes, a dar un vuelco radical a su vida. Pese a haber descubierto un reducto de libertad, y estar dispuesto a asumir las consecuencias de sus actos como un paso ineludible en el camino hacia la plenitud, Viktor constata que esa libertad tiene otra cara imprevista que lo sume en el desconcierto. Así pues, atormentado por la duda, en un arrebato llama a la puerta de la mujer desconocida con la que acaba de cruzarse en el vestíbulo del hotel, sin saber si del otro lado del umbral lo aguarda la penumbra de la locura o la luz de la verdad. Publicada en 1934, La extraña es una de las novelas más redondas de Sándor Márai; un texto breve y vibrante que narra un viaje hacia lo más recóndito del alma humana. Márai mantiene sin titubeos la tensión de un relato sobre la ambigüedad del amor, la angustia de la incertidumbre y el abismo de la soledad. Su inolvidable protagonista, Viktor Askenasi, es un hombre en busca de respuestas, un espíritu insatisfecho para quien lo que llamamos amor conduce apenas a una felicidad transitoria, antesala de la inevitable destrucción
