Gábor Schein
A photograph of Hungarian writer Gábor Schein

One of the most exciting and incisive writers to emerge in post-Communist Hungary, Gábor Schein is the author of 10 books of poetry and 5 novels. Schein's work addresses the trauma and complicity of survivorhood in intensely lyrical prose. His examination of contemporary Hungarian society, and its legacy from the 20th century, evinces an unflinching gaze matched by few other authors.
