A Book & a Cd

Went for an afternoon walk on Saturday
and popped in to Alexandra Bookstore
- bought a book of short stories by Gyula Krudy
& a cd of System of Down
- the whole summer went by by listening to
Volbeat & Ramones while running on Margit Island,
so it was time to change the tune
.
Gyula Krúdy (21 October 1878 – 12 May 1933)
was a Hungarian writer and journalist.
In his teens, Gyula published newspaper pieces
and began writing short stories.
Krúdy's novels about Budapest were popular
during the First World War and the Hungarian Revolution,
but he was often broke due to excessive drinking,
gambling and philandering.
He was called "a Hungarian Proust"
by critic Charles Champlin in The New York Times.
