At long last, twenty-five years after the Hungarian genius László Krasznahorkai burst onto the scene with his first novel, Satantango dances into English in a beautiful translation by George Szirtes.

“Satantango,” Krasznahorkai’s first book, shares many of his later novels’ thematic concerns...but it’s an altogether more digestible work. Its story skips around in perspective and temporality, but the narrative is rarely unclear.Read Full Review of Satantango | See more reviews from NY Times
...this is an obviously brilliant novel. Krasznahorkai is a visionary writer; even the strangest developments in the story convince, and are beautifully integrated within the novel's dance-like structure.Read Full Review of Satantango | See more reviews from Guardian
