Fresh out of an unsatisfying relationship with a younger woman, John Martin, a successful advertising agent living in New York, is suddenly possessed by a strange and irresistible desire to cross the globe to Budapest and strike up a new friendship with his ex-wife, with whom he hasn't spoken in years. Plunged into the mysterious world of Budapest just after the collapse of the Iron Curtain, he falls in love with a waitress while also inadvertently reawakening and expanding intimacy with his ex-wife. He quickly becomes the apex of two conflicting love triangles, but his repeated trips to Budapest only deepen the confusion and longing set off by a series of dreams and random events that he mistakenly takes as his emotional guide. The first book of the Andrássy ut Trilogy, a series of thematically related works, The Forest is a sumptuous and captivating novella, rich in psychological insights and depth of linguistic expression. Death in Venice for Generation X, The Forest does for post-communist Budapest what Hemmingway and Fitzgerald did for Paris in the twenties.
A young Holocaust survivor finds her new life in America unfulfilling, returns to Europe, eventually immigrates to the Jewish Homeland, where happiness and fulfillment are interwoven with tragedy and irony in an intimate saga spanning fifty years and three continents.
