Be Faithful Unto Death

Be Faithful unto Death is the moving story of a bright and sensitive schoolboy growing up in an old-established boarding school in the city of Debrecen in eastern Hungary. Misi, a dreamer and would-be writer, is falsely accused of stealing a winning lottery ticket. The torments through which he goes – and grows – are superbly described.

The novel is brimming with vivid detail from the provincial life that Móricz knew so well and shot through with a sense of the tragic fate of a newly truncated Hungary.

About the Author

Zsigmond Móricz (1879-1942) wrote poems, essays and short stories as well as novels, and was one of the group of writer associated with the journal Nyugat (West). He excelled particulary at portraying the life of the rural and small-town Hungary in which he himself grew up. 

Reviews

"It is impossible to read this book without recovering something of the intensity of one's own childhood emotions."—The Scotsman
