Description
A page-turning dystopian classic that stands alongside "Brave New World "and "Gulliver's Travels."
"Voyage to Kazohinia" is a tour de force of twentieth-century literature--and it is here published in English for the first time outside of Hungary. Sandor Szathmari's comical novel chronicles the travels of a modern Gulliver on the eve of World War II. A shipwrecked English ship's surgeon finds himself on an unknown island whose inhabitants, the Hins, live a technologically advanced existence without emotions, desires, arts, money, or politics. Soon unhappy amid this bleak perfection, Gulliver asks to be admitted to the closed settlement of the Behins, beings with souls and atavistic human traits. He has seen nothing yet. A massively entertaining mix of satire and science fiction, "Voyage to Kazohinia" has seen half a dozen editions in Hungary in the seventy years since its original publication and remains the country's most popular cult classic.
