Read full description of the books:
Alla morte del marito Vince, un vecchio magistrato, Etelka accetta la proposta della figlia di lasciare la cittadina di provincia dove ha trascorso gran parte della vita e di trasferirsi a Budapest.
Iza, una dottoressa molto attiva e stimata da pazienti e colleghi, organizza la vita della madre in ogni dettaglio, eliminando qualsiasi traccia del passato. Poco alla volta l'anziana donna si ritrova come pietrificata in una sorta di non-esistenza, sino a quando non decide di tornare nella cittadina per assistere alla posa di una lapide sulla tomba del marito.
Scritto nei primi anni Sessanta, La ballata di Iza ha alcuni punti di contatto con La porta, il romanzo più noto di Magda Szabó: il complesso rapporto fra due donne, la generale incapacità umana di comprendersi e di comunicare, con la storia dell'Ungheria sullo sfondo. Il romanzo conferma cosí la straordinaria bravura della scrittrice, capace di narrare l'insopportabile solitudine di Etelka, il suo lento rinchiudersi e spegnersi, l'incapacità di Iza di immedesimarsi nella madre, con una scrittura lieve ma allo stesso tempo precisa e implacabile, alla quale è difficile sottrarsi.

Read information about the authorMagda Szabó was a Hungarian writer, arguably Hungary's foremost female novelist. She also wrote dramas, essays, studies, memories and poetry.
Born in Debrecen, Szabó graduated at the University of Debrecen as a teacher of Latin and of Hungarian. She started working as a teacher in a Calvinist all-girl school in Debrecen and Hódmezővásárhely. Between 1945 and 1949 she was working in the Ministry of Religion and Education. She married the writer and translator Tibor Szobotka in 1947.
She began her writing career as a poet, publishing her first book Bárány ("Lamb") in 1947, which was followed by Vissza az emberig ("Back to the Human") in 1949. In 1949 she was awarded the Baumgarten Prize, which was--for political reasons--withdrawn from her on the very day it was given. She was dismissed from the Ministry in the same year.
During the establishment of Stalinist rule from 1949 to 1956, the government did not allow her works to be published. Since her unemployed husband was also stigmatized by the communist regime, she was forced to teach in an elementary school during this period.
Her first novel, Freskó ("Fresco"), written in these years was published in 1958 and achieved overwhelming success among readers. Her most widely read novel, Abigél ("Abigail", 1970), is an adventure story about a schoolgirl boarding in eastern Hungary during the war.
She received several prizes in Hungary, and her works have been published in 42 countries. In 2003, she was the winner of the French literary prize Prix Femina Étranger for the best foreign novel.
Her novel Abigél was popularized through a much-loved television series in 1978. Abigél was also chosen as the sixth most popular novel at the Hungarian version of Big Read. Her three other novels that were in the top 100 are Für Elise , An Old-Fashioned Story , and The Door .
