Review:

"Improbably, you lose your heart and head to [The Door], which somehow cuts to the quick of everything that matters and does so in a voice which is, at the same time, materially straightforward and intensely hypnotic" (Simon Schama Financial Times)

"Szabó manages to conjure up as many cliffhangers as an Indiana Jones film. The Door is a triumph. Clever, moving, frightening, it deserves to be a bestseller" (Tibor Fischer Daily Telegraph)

"One of Hungary’s most important twentieth-century writers" (New York Times)

"The Door is a deeply strange and equally affecting book, a dark domestic fairy tale about the relationship between a Hungarian writer, Magda, and her taciturn elderly housekeeper, Emerence" (John Williams (author of Stoner) New York Times)

"No brief summary can do justice to the intelligence and moral complexity of this novel. I picked it up without expectation. I read it with gathering intensity, and a swelling admiration. I finished it, and straightaway started to read it again. It is unusual, original and utterly compelling" (Scotsman)

From the Publisher:

A story of the relationship between two women, one encouraging the other to emerge from her inner isolation. Poignantly sad but resolutely uplifting.
