“Valeria, a 50-ish curmudgeon of a woman, finds fault with everyone in her small Hungarian village. One day, though, the town's potter catches her eye, and she discovers herself. Full of interesting characters, intrigue, love and lust, political corruption, and more, Valeria's Last Stand is a delightful and satisfying read.”
— Gayle Wingerter, Inklings Bookshop, Yakima, WA

Description


The Hungarian village of Zivatar may be isolated, but it is not completely immune to the changes sweeping the country. The Soviets have left, and the villagers are warming to the blessings of capitalism-expensive cars, cheap women, and California fruit. It's all too much for Valeria, the village grouch. And yet, Valeria is not immune to change, either. Her routine trip to the market leads to unexpected love, and sets off a chain reaction through the entire village. A remarkably accomplished debut novel, Valeria's Last Stand contemplates love, lust, tradition, and transition with wisdom and warmth.
