ÚJ LÁTÓHATÁR Literary and Political Review Editors: Gyula Borbándi, József Molnár SUMMARY We open our present issue with a long story, „There is no end of miracles", by Győző Határ (London), the second and last part of which will be appearing in Üj Látóhatár's next edition. The reader may also find two remarkable remembrances of the century's beginning. Béla Padányi- Gulyás (Geneva) who sketches the life of a small Hungarian town by recollecting the time he spent there, is a known politician: he was a leading figure of the former Small-holders' Party in Hungary. It must be added that the town in question, Máramarossziget, lay in the nort-east borderland of former Hungary, in Sub-Carpathia, now belonging to Rumania. Pál Tábori (London) brings also back the past, as a matter of fact, the years of the twenties in Budapest, by relating his experiences there. Imre Máté (Munich) contributed parodies on eight Hungarian poets, both in and outside Hungary. Üj Látóhatár also presents new poems by Veronika Gergely (Cleveland), Dezső Monoszlóy (Vienna), Gábor Fülöp (Budapest) and Géza Thinsz (Stockholm). In our Document column historian Péter Gosztonyi (Bern) makes the first disclosure of some military documents about the siege of Budapest in 1944-45, giving an overall picture of the life of the inhabitants of the Hungarian capital during that siege. In the Observer section Gyula Borbándi gives a critique about a book by communist historian István Tóth on the National Peasant Party, published last year in Budapest. Magda Czigány (Berkeley, Calif.) deals with a novel by András Domahidy who lives in Australia. The plot of the novel takes place straight after World War Two and its central figure is a Hungarian landowner. Tamás Kabdebó (London) draws attention on Pál Tábori's book, „The Anatomy of Exile", while the subject of Tamás Tűz (Scarborough, Ont.) is a Hungarian anthology of literature, printed in Canada. Tibor Hanak (Vienna) writes about new philosophical works on violence and Gyula Borbándi commemorates Károly Szirmai, a Hungarian novelist who lived in Yugoslavia and died last year.
