The Pendragon Legend, set in London and Wales, is part philosophical thriller, upper-class comedy, murder-mystery, romance and ghost story. Its author, Antal Szerb, wrote in a manner he termed 'the new frivolism', by which serious themes are pursued through more typically lightweight genres. Antal Szerb was born in 1901 into a cultivated Budapest family of Jewish descent. The Pendragon Legend, his first novel, was written in 1934. Journey by Moonlight appeared in 1937, followed in 1943 by The Queen's Necklace. He died in the forced-labour camp at Balf in January 1945.

4.0 Antal Szerb - The Pendragon Legend
'Tell me,' he asked, with some embarassment, as we strolled along: 'you're a bloody German, aren't you?''Oh, no. I'm Hungarian.''Hungarian?''Hungarian.''What's that? Is that a country? Or you are just having me on?'Not at all. On my word of honour, it is a country.''And where do you Hungarians live?...

Might save it for a Gothic month, but it was seriously dragging.
