The Burning of the World
Friday 30 October 2015, 08:00pm - 10:00pm
Peter Zombory-Moldovan


In 2012, Peter Zombory-Moldovan, a British-born London lawyer, was handed the yellowing manuscript of a memoir secretly written by his grandfather, the Hungarian artist Béla Zombory-Moldován (1885-1967). In it Béla describes his experience of the early months of the Great War. Peter’s English translation, published in 2014 as The Burning of the World, has been critically acclaimed on both sides of the Atlantic (the Irish Times called it “the literary discovery of the year”).
