Overview

Life is a Dream (1931) is Gyula Krudy's magical collection of ten short stories.

Focussing on the poor and dispossessed, these tales of love, food, death and sex are ironic and wise about the human condition and the futility of life, and display fully Krudy's wit and mastery of the form.
