Esther's Inheritance, November 2008

Random House has updated its Marai page and the next Marai novel in English, Esther's Inheritance, will be published in November. Huzzah!

I also note that both Embers and Casanova in Bolzano are currently available as ebooks for Amazon's Kindle (and presumably Sony's Reader), and that Esther's Inheritance will be, as well. I applaud this move-- I personally will be reading Marai in book form but no doubt some readers will prefer the ebook format.

Marai translator George Szirtes has a few excerpts, with some commentary, online at his blog: two thoughts, more.

Hello. Do you have any thought's on Marai's memoir?
Also -did you see Embers on stage in London with Jeremy Irons? It was fabulous!!

I read Esther's Inheritance in Spanish, it's a great book, among Marai's best, about a single middle aged woman (the Esther of the title) in the thrall of a con man.
