In a rare U.S. appearance by one of Europe’s leading writers, Péter Esterházy read from Celestial Harmonies, a work that Mario Vargas Llosa described as an “ambitious magnum opus, a masterwork.” In this clip, Esterházy reads from his novel and is interviewed by Peter Sherwood, with André Balog interpreting. Sherwood asked Esterházy what it was like to be a member of a distinguished aristocratic family in post-war state socialist Hungary.
