Eszter lives together with Nunu, a former housekeeper of the family, in a secluded house with a garden from which they feed. Eszter has remained nothing except home and land. In the course of his life, Lajos has brought Eszter and her family all the possessions, lied to and deceived, so that at her just enough to live.

Lajos was a friend of her brother’s brother, and with his vivacity he conjured up the whole family. Eszer loved Laj After 20 years, Lajos announces his visit to Eszter by telegram. Eszer loved Lajos, and Lajos also had feelings for Eszter. Ultimately, he did not marry her, but her sisters. Eszter and Nunu joke in the evening before the expected visit that they “have to lock away the silver”, but both know that this would probably go on the whole in this last visit.

Still yet – Lajos is the only person in Eszter’s life whom she loved. When Lajos arrives, he does not come alone, he brings acquaintances, all of whom have to do with his demands on Eszter. During the conversation between Eszter and Lajos, Eszter very quickly reverts to Lajo’s charm. Although she knows that he is lying and even enjoying himself, he impresses her with his way of speaking and the insolence with which he sees the world and he manages to wrap her up very quickly. There are also talks with Lajos daughter and letters that Lajos Eszter had before 20 Years but of which Eszter had no knowledge to this day.

Now Lajos came to finish what he started, for, he says, they are the laws of the world. This novel was first published in in Budapest. I complain about there being no POMO. But there are no abrupt shifts. Where are those sharp slaying edges? I know it’s no use. He’ll keep turning the pages. He’s full of hope and patience. I slur a remark. How could he have heard?

La Herencia de Eszter – Sándor Márai – Google Libros

I hate it when he presses a finger against his lips, snatching away my popcorn and making threats neither of us believe he will or can carry out. I read with him one eye open. By the time I open the other herrncia is too late. On the dusty ground I look around.

Where did he go? Not much of a town. It seems like one of those places that have always been that way. The few people here speak with excitement. Some guy is coming back after twenty years.

Some older guy who broke all of their rules of living based on fulfilling their responsibilities. Being the marathon test needed for them to be acclaimed, a good person.


This Lajos was not. He broke all the codes, living by the jitters of his impulses. He was bringing some others with him. Most importantly, he was riding in with some desperado named, Time. No herecnia carried esster popcorn with them here but a woman directed me to an old house not far from town where two women lived.

By some sort of coincidence I guess this was where this Lajos would arrive and practically everyone else would be there too. It was to Esther he was returning. She waited, bided, time for twenty years with her older cousin Nunnu. The old women, one a bunch older than the other sat under an old tree drinking tea in cups.

The house is ed, the garden is old, the almond grove.

I feel like I’m walking onto some staid stage set. Where’s the other guy? He’s somewhere else reading this book slow.

He’s stopping after each paragraph and thinking, analyzing, enjoying the…sound of the words, finding some fancy named category, herencoa these women are waiting for this Lajos guy too. Everybody’s waiting for him except…ah, Mister Big- on his easy chair in his own way, too.

But I’m the one getting herecnia and dusty. No, that’s not true. No one here gets dirty and dusty. Why can’t I be one of those unreliable narrators. I hate the way big-shot turns the pages.

I’d rather be here, inside, find out what this Lajos guy is? It’s a little like that time I slipped into that Godot book and had such a hard time getting out. But here I am and starting to get it. I watch, listen, allow my senses to tingle. There is no tingling in this town. If this is a story- and I know my friend big-shot would sadnor so because beneath herencua simple language he would call sandog and refer to this Walser guy he likes-it is one of biding.

Everyone around me here is biding. It’s like an old Twilight Zone episode where they are fighting with placidity to hold back and bide time. This Lajos had shed all the harnesses of responsibility and stepped into time. He left and for twenty years these poor people have been going through the motions of life.
