Like gifted new writers such as David Bezmozgis and Jacqueline Baker, Tamas Dobozy brings a unique voice to a traditional form of fiction. This stunning new collection of stories shines with irony, wisdom and dark comedy as it explores the ways in which we come together and pull apart. Marked with a strong sense of the bonds of history, the pain of loneliness and the price of fidelity,Last Notes, Dobozy’s second collection, plays the human condition at a perfect pitch.

With stories such as "Tales of Hungarian Resistance" and "Four Uncles," Dobozy reveals the cultural no-man’s land that many children of immigrants are trapped within. Other stories, including "The Inert Landscapes of György Ferenc" and "Last Notes," envision the complex connections between artistic vision and madness. "Into the Ring," a comic masterpiece, delivers a one-two satirical punch to the institution of marriage, as a couple settles its conflicts in the boxing ring.

These are stories shot through with wit, profundity, a love of the absurd and a wide-ranging imagination. Tamas Dobozy is a writer to watch and to savour.
