The Pendragon Legend, Paperback Book

The Pendragon Legend Paperback

Part of the Pushkin Blues series



At an end-of-the London season soiree, the young Hungarian scholar-dilettante Janos Batky is introduced to the Earl of Gwynedd, a reclusive eccentric who is the subject of strange rumours.

Invited to the family seat, Pendragon Castle in North Wales, Batky receives a mysterious phone-call warning him not to go.

Antal Szerb's first novel The Pendragon Legend (1934), set in Wales is a gently satirical blend of gothic and romantic genres, crossed with the murder mystery format to produce a fast-moving and often hilarious romp.

But beneath the surface, the reader becomes aware of a steely intelligence probing moral, psychological and religious questions.
