Overview

A woman journalist who exposes the hypocrisy of the Soviet-dominated press is found murdered. With a plot that could have been ripped from today’s headlines, Another Love offers “a finely balanced blend of entertainment and political commentary” (Publishers Weekly).
A great novel of the 1956 Hungarian uprising against the Soviets, Another Love is a classic of Eastern European literature.
Lieutenant Marosi of the Hungarian border patrol has found the body of Eva Szalánczky, an old school friend whom he has secretly been in love with for many years. Eva was a lesbian, an outspoken critic of the communist regime, and a journalist whose stories were too hot to publish in the dangerous 1950s. Determined to find out the truth about her death, Marosi requests leave and heads for Budapest.
As Marosi pieces together Eva’s life, Another Love becomes more than a mystery about one woman, but a courageous, compassionate attempt to understand the political mystery of post-War Eastern Europe.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This detective story by Hungarian novelist Galgoczi (who died in 1989) is an effective, finely balanced blend of entertainment and political commentary. Eva Szalanczky, a journalist in her late 20s, is shot and killed in 1959 p. 11 as she attempts an illegal crossing from Hungary to Yugoslavia. When Eva's body is brought in, First Lieutenant Marosi knows her immediately: he loved her back when they were students. Marosi wonders why Eva chose an ultimately fatal course: had she genuinely wanted to defect, Marosi, who's on the border forces, could have gotten her out, or she could have left during the country's 1956 rebellion. Determined to know the truth, Marosi requests leave and heads for Budapest. By talking with her friends and acquaintances there (those who haven't defected or been imprisoned or executed) and uncovering clues in some personal notes, Marosi begins to piece together a fuller, more complex image of Eva: a talented journalist, ally of the downtrodden, uncompromising critic of the government and the Communist Party, a thoroughly charming but equally annoying friend and a woman struggling with her lesbianism. (Jan.)
Library Journal

In this 1980 release, a Hungarian border patrol finds the body of a woman, and Lieutenant Marosi sadly recognizes her as Eva Szalanczky, a political activist he secretly loved. He vows to find her killers, and his investigation not only reveals her life but the country's political climate in the 1950s.
