Ádam Bodor

Ádám Bodor (Cluj-Kolozsvár, Romania, 1936) was arrested and imprisoned by the political police in 1952 but was released in 1954. He left his native Transylvania in 1982 to settle in Budapest, where he still lives, working as an editor. Considered by many to be one of the most important figures in contemporary Hungarian literature, he won the Hungarian Literary Prize in 2002. His highly-charged novels are very pithy and poetically condensed.
