They Were Divided free pdf A Hungarian classic and winner of the 2002 Oxford Weidenfeld Translation Prize, They Were Divided reflects the rapidly disintegrating course of events in central Europe on the eve of WWI. In the foreground, it tells the story of Balint and his flawed cousin, Laszlo Gyeroffy, told with humour and bittersweet nostalgia for a paradise lost through folly. In the background, the sinister and fast-moving events in the Balkans eventually not only lead to a horrific war, but also to the complete dismemberment of their once-great country.

About Miklos Banffy

Count Miklos Banffy (1873-1950) lived most of his life either at the castle of Bonczhida in Transylvania or in the family's town house in Pest. Banffy was variously a diplomat, MP and a foreign minister in the 1921/22 when he signed the peace treaty with the United States and obtained Hungary's admission to the League of Nations. He was responsible for organizing the last Habsburg coronation, that of King Karl in 1916. His famous Transylvanian Trilogy, of which They Were Divided forms the third part, was published just before the Second World War. It was ignored under the communists, and has recently been republished to great acclaim in his native country and in the UK and France.
