'My story begins one thousand one hundred and eleven years ago, across another continent, in another age.' This is the story of Rovar Akos Pfliegman, a man with no relatives and no friends. No church, no office, no warm and embracing community. No formal education, no achievements, and no aspirations. The last remaining descendant of a line of the worst sort of losers on the planet. It is the story of a small, bearded man selling meat out of a bus parked next to a stream in suburban Virginia, USA ...and also, somehow, the story of 10,000 years of Hungarian history. 'The Convalescent is a fleshly fable spinning in and out of its own enormous, fabulous history. It is lush, cranky, and powered by dark, sweet humor. Mesmerizing. And a lot of fun.' KATHERINE DUNN 'Jessica Anthony is a writer possessed of mind-blending talents.' HEIDI JULAVITS 'A blissfully nutty, brainy, ribald, brilliantly imaginative ide to human loneliness, oddity, and persistence.' FRANCISCO GOLDMAN
