More Marai

Sandor Marai was introduced to the English-speaking world with Embers, after which came Casanova in Bolzano. For those whose appetite has been whetted for more -- including onself -- there's now The Rebels, translated by George Szirtes, which Arthur Philips calls "a darkly comic, war-ravaged coming-of-age tale that displays much of the genius visible in his later works, but it’s also funnier and more extravagantly imaginative than those books might have led one to expect."
