by Péter Gárdos, Hungary.
It’s 1945 and Miklós is looking for a wife. The fact that he has six months left to live doesn’t discourage him – he isn’t one to let small problems like that stand in the way, especially after he’s survived a concentration camp. Currently marooned in an all-male sanatorium in Sweden and desperate to get out, he acquires the names of the 117 Hungarian women also recovering in Sweden and writes each of them a letter in his beautiful cursive hand. Luckily for him. Lili decides to write back. 
Drawn from the real-life letters of Péter Gárdos’ parents, this is a vibrant, ribald, and unforgettable tale showing the death-defying power of the human will to live and to love.
