Join fellow Columbia alumni as the book club discusses Under the Frog by Tibor Fischer selected by our host David Hartmann.
Under the Frog follows the adventures of two young Hungarian basketball players through the turbulent years between the end of World War II and the anti-Soviet uprising of 1956. In this spirited indictment of totalitarianism, the two improbable heroes, Pataki and Gyuri, travel the length and breadth of Hungary in an epic quest for food, lodging, and female companionship. The book was a winner of the 1992 Betty Trask Award and was the first debut novel to be shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. We hope you will attend for an evening of lively discussion.
