Read full description of the books:



El último expediente llegado a la mesa de trabajo de Kristóf Kömives, juez en la Budapest de entreguerras, es el divorcio de los Greiner. Un caso más, excepto que el nombre de soltera de la mujer, Anna Fazekas, hace perder al magistrado su inmutable serenidad. El alegre desparpajo de la juventud, un paseo por el lago, una mirada arrebatadora: la evocación de aquellos instantes fugaces son suficientes para perturbar, después de tantos años, el aparente sosiego de su intachable vida burguesa. Y cuando el señor Greiner se presenta en su casa con la noticia del suicidio de su mujer, Kristóf no puede resistirse al aluvión de sentimientos encontrados que inundan su espíritu. Durante el transcurso de una noche, Kristóf asumirá el doble papel de acusado y testigo de la confesión de Greiner, que al desgranar la historia de su matrimonio pondrá de relieve el abismo que separa a los dos hombres; por un lado, el burgués que renunció a la emoción de lo desconocido para perpetuar los sólidos valores de una clase social asentada y satisfecha de sí misma, y por otro, el joven advenedizo que por conquistar una mujer que le estaba vedada se entregó a una existencia erigida sobre la impostura y encorsetada en unos cánones ajenos a su persona. Así pues, con el inminente estallido de la guerra más devastadora que ha conocido la Humanidad como telón de fondo, el azar les otorga la ocasión de reflexionar acerca de aquellas vivencias y sentimientos que nunca habían sido capaces de compartir con nadie, y redimir en parte, si acaso, los errores que les condujeron a la situación actual.

Read information about the author

Ebook Divorcio en Buda read Online! Sándor Márai (originally Sándor Károly Henrik Grosschmied de Mára) was a Hungarian writer and journalist.
He was born in the city of Kassa in Austria-Hungary (now Košice in Slovakia) to an old family of Saxon origin who had mixed with magyars through the centuries. Through his father he was a relative of the Ország-family. In his early years, Márai travelled to and lived in Frankfurt, Berlin, and Paris and briefly considered writing in German, but eventually chose his mother language, Hungarian, for his writings. He settled in Krisztinaváros, Budapest, in 1928. In the 1930s, he gained prominence with a precise and clear realist style. He was the first person to write reviews of the work of Kafka.
He wrote very enthusiastically about the Vienna Awards, in which Germany forced Czechoslovakia and Romania to give back part of the territories which Hungary lost in the Treaty of Trianon. Nevertheless, Márai was highly critical of the Nazis as such and was considered "profoundly antifascist," a dangerous position to take in wartime Hungary.
Marai authored forty-six books, mostly novels, and was considered by literary critics to be one of Hungary's most influential representatives of middle class literature between the two world wars. His 1942 book Embers (Hungarian title: A gyertyák csonkig égnek, meaning "The Candles Burn Down to the Stump") expresses a nostalgia for the bygone multi-ethnic, multicultural society of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, reminiscent of the works of Joseph Roth. In 2006 an adaptation of this novel for the stage, written by Christopher Hampton, was performed in London.
He also disliked the Communist regime that seized power after World War II, and left – or was driven away – in 1948. After living for some time in Italy, Márai settled in the city of San Diego, California, in the United States.
He continued to write in his native language, but was not published in English until the mid-1990s. Márai's Memoir of Hungary (1944-1948) provides an interesting glimpse of post World War II Hungary under Soviet occupation. Like other memoirs by Hungarian writers and statesmen, it was first published in the West, because it could not be published in the Hungary of the post-1956 Kádár era. The English version of the memoir was published posthumously in 1996. After his wife died, Márai retreated more and more into isolation. He committed suicide by a gunshot to his head in San Diego in 1989.
Largely forgotten outside of Hungary, his work (consisting of poems, novels, and diaries) has only been recently "rediscovered" and republished in French (starting in 1992), Polish, Catalan, Italian, English, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Czech, Danish, Icelandic, Korean, Dutch, and other languages too, and is now considered to be part of the European Twentieth Century literary canon.
