Sándor Márai

Sándor Márai (1900-1989), a major author of the 20th century, is known and appreciated by readers French speakers since the 1990s thanks to the French translations of several of his novels and his memoirs. He was a humanist and a great European, witness to trials crossed by this continent, between nostalgia for a bygone world and continual wonder at the inexhaustible energy of life.
