The Club at Eddy's Bar

by Zoltan Boszormenyi

 

Tamas is the link between the two divergent societies portrayed in this evocative story of human intrigue and ambition, desire and betrayal, commitment and infidelity. As he flees his homeland in Eastern Europe and arrives as a refugee in Canada, Tamas must battle with bureaucracy to set himself free from his past and ensure that his family can join him in his new life. He finds kindness and compassion too along the way as he struggles to learn a new language in an alien place and find the work that will be the key to his future success.

MAJORANA TAKING STOCK

MAJORANA TAKING STOCK

Done taking stock.

Nothing to add.

Blank white wall.

An endless winter croupier.

The stake at stake.

Two crickets having a ball.

Empty kettle in the kitchen. Stinks.

Books, booze, in neutral.

City gate with muddy links.

Shirt ironed and starched.

It's yours if you call.

Having doubts? I'll put them to sleep.

You're a treasure. All.  And nothing at all.

FIVE-STAR POEM DE LUXE

FIVE-STAR POEM DE LUXE

 Dedicated to Lawrence Ferlinghetti on the occasion of his acceptance and subsequent rejection of the 2012 Janus Pannonius Poetry Prize awarded by the Hungarian PEN Club

 

This is a five-star poem de luxe.

Smoking is not allowed anywhere inside.

They’ve given Bob Dylan and Ginsberg

the bum’s rush through the back door.

Singing though is permitted:

 

Updike

Snap me up in your jaws and run off with me to join the shades of this world without souls. But if you try to devour me or plant a tree of fear inside me, I'll laugh at you.

He Set off for the World with the Shirt on His Back

Zoltán Böszörményi arrived in Toronto without the command of the language or any marketable skills and with $25 in his pocket. A few years and a college degree later he was running his own business. But it was not there that he made his first million.

Recenzió

Far from Nothing

“This book will be enjoyed by many and loathed by no less. No reader will be left indifferent.” Says György Ferdinándy, the writer.
“Not a bad book, but I doubt if I’d read it again,” said the person who handed me the book. This and the above quote on the back of the book piqued my curiosity.
