Life Is a Dream is Gyula Krúdy's (1878-1933) magical collection of ten short stories. Creating a world where editors shoot themselves after a hard day's brunching, men attend duels incognito and lovers fall out over salad dressing, Life Is a Dream (1931) is a comic, nostalgic, romantic and erotic glimpse into the rural Hungary of the early twentieth century.
