- The Sun Worshipper by István Gáll (1931-1982), published in 1970, is one of the important, though neglected works of the period. Inspired by the story of his life, it is about a young peasant boy turned writer and his relationship with a girl who comes from a Jewish-proletarian big city family. The story of their love and marriage provides a fascinating insight into Hungarian history and society around the time of the Second World War, up until the 1970s. Modern in both subject and structure, the novel is based on the rapid change back and forth between various layers of time.
