Sunflower event in NYC

Sara, at NYRB’s weblog, is inviting you to their ‘launch’ event for Sunflower. If you’re in NYC tomorrow you should go check it out.

The Hungarian Cultural Center presents John Lukacs in conversation with John Bátki. They will be discussing Gyúla Krúdy’s Sunflower. This fantasia of a book has never before been published in the United States.

Thursday, September 20, 2007, 7:00pm, Hungarian Cultural Center, 47 Broadway, 5th Floor, Free

If you aren’t familiar with Krúdy’s work (which has been compared to that of Robert Walser and Bruno Schultz), you’re in for a treat. Practically everyone who worked on the book here—from proofreader to book designer—has found herself bowled over by it.
