Read full description of the books Ditelo a Sofia:Budapest, estate 1957. Sofia ha undici anni e non riesce a capire il difficile mondo dei grandi intorno a lei. Timida e impacciata, studentessa mediocre e delusione continua per sua madre, Sofia aveva un buon rapporto solo con il padre, giovane medico stroncato da un infarto. «Ditelo a Sofia» sono le sue ultime parole, che diventano per la ragazzina un’ossessione. «Ditelo a Sofia»: ma cosa? Il desiderio spasmodico di conoscere l’ultimo messaggio del padre la spinge sulle tracce dell’unico testimone che era in ambulatorio in quel momento, il terribile signor Pongráz, l’anziano usciere della sua scuola. L’uomo nasconde, dietro la rabbia, un doloroso segreto, Sofia vede gli errori degli adulti, ma non giudica e cerca qualcuno che le voglia bene per quello che è. Insieme, l’anziano scontroso e la bambina troppo sensibile, cercheranno risposta alla loro silenziosa domanda d’amore. Da una scrittrice che ha segnato la letteratura del Novecento, conosciuta dal grande pubblico per il suo capolavoro La Porta, un romanzo lieve e profondo, che parla una lingua senza tempo e dipinge i moti dell’animo nelle loro più sottili sfumature, rendendo straordinarie vite ordinarie.
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 In 1949 she was awarded the Baumgarten Prize, which was--for political reasons--withdrawn from her on the very day it was given.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 .
