Ferenc Molnar, The Paul Street Boys

On my last trip to Europe, one of my first stops was Budapest, Hungary. A dear friend there told me about The Paul Street Boys, and said that since I had a bit of time in town, I should read it before I left. Of course, rather than read, we talked, we went out, I wandered–and I never got around to reading his copy before departing. Intending to take his suggestion, I wrote the title and author in my notebook.

Three weeks later, I visited a friend who owns a hostel in Croatia. Guess which was the only English language novel on the hostel bookshelf? The Paul Street Boys.  I’m nearly too excited to read it!
