More reviews for Esther's Inheritance

Some more reviews around the web:

The Complete Review: "ultra-melodramatic character studies from another age."

The Guardian

Financial Times: "The writing is taut and the atmosphere of suspense carefully constructed, but this story is very much of its time."

The Telegraph, review by English-Hungarian novelist Tibor Fischer: "Of Márai’s work available in English, Conversations in Bolzano is the most cerebral. The Rebels is, I would argue, the best so far, but perhaps too dark for many readers. I suspect Esther’s Inheritance, elegantly rendered by the poet George Szirtes, will rival the commercial success of Embers – I can see the reading groups having a good ding-dong about this one."
