"Eveline leaves the city for her country estate in order to forget her love for Kálmán. Eveline's story becomes inextricably intertwined with the lives of the locals: she is wooed by the legendary Álmos-Dreamer, provides lodging and company for the odd Miss Maszkerádi, and tries to keep peace with Gypsy-loving neighbor Pistoli. In this community, everyone knows everything about one another, making each interaction full of complications, village gossip, and intrigue. Krúdy eulogizes a way of life already disappearing as the work was being written and presents a glimpse of rural Hungary that is at once comic, nostalgic, romantic, and erotic"--Provided by Library Journal.
