Other comparisons come to mind. His work purrs with the fin-de-siecle urbane eroticism in Arthur Schnitzler's stories.

His shifting viewpoints and streams of consciousness recall Virginia Woolf. Like Kafka, he's willing to let dream and reality mingle. He's ironic and wise about the human heart and life's futility, like Chekhov. His fond portrayal of rural life evokes the Levin scenes in Anna Karenina Sunflower is an erotic carnival The more translations of this untranslatable genius there are, the closer we'll be to his shimmering, melancholy world.

Go to abe. I think. You can get new NYRBs they may have remainder marks for as little as a dollar and not more than 5 or 6 dollars. All were new NYRB remainders. You can't beat that. Sunflower was one of the books I ordered. Note, Symposium discounts the shipping when you order more than one.

I am patiently waiting for them to arrive. Some place are much more expensive than others. For example, books from Germany seem to be inordinately expensive to me at least. I have yet to figure out the vagaries of mail and shipping. I was so tempted to buy it but didn't.

Book prices here are outrageous and we have also had a Tax on them for the last 7 years. In most instances it is cheaper to buy online than in the local store which is sad, isnt it? Our postal prices are reasonable. Jun 21, , pm. I have always loved The Crying of Lot Books should be within everyone's price range.

Sunflower was bought for my brother's birthday a year or two ago, with every wish I could buy for myself. Wharton 's short stories, so far as I read them, I remember loving; but it's been a long time. Rebeccanyc, a little more time and I'll enjoy exploring your list thoroughly. Thanks to Maren for mentioning The Little Bookroom. It appealed very much, and in a lapse had been forgotten. Jun 27, , pm. Can distinctly recollect heated correspondence in Time and Tide regarding vraisemblance or otherwise of Jamaica children, and now range myself, decidedly and forever, on the side of the author.

Can quite believe that dear Vicky would murder any number of sailors, if necessary. Sounds like a very deep novel. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for participating! I like the excerpted passage - very visual and evocative. I don't think I've read a Hungarian book before.
Sunflower (New York Review Books Classics) [Paperback]
I don't think this book is one that I would "get" very well, so I appreciate your thorough review. This sounds FANtastic! Off-kilter yet oddly lovely.
