Travelling to Italy on their honeymoon, Erszi and Mihály are ready to take in all the beauties and pleasures of the country. But when they reach Venice, it is clear that Mihály prefers to roam around the back alleys and the canals on his own, and as they continue their journey through the Bel Paese there is a growing sense of unrest between them, until Mihály misses the train to Rome they were due to take together. Wandering alone from city to city, with his marriage rapidly falling apart, Mihály must confront the ghosts of his past and try to find a sense of purpose.

Originally written in 1937, and here presented in a brilliant new translation by Peter V. Czipott, Antal Szerb's gently humorous and psychologically subtle exploration into the workings of a budding bourgeois marriage has been hailed as one of the great rediscovered classics of the twentieth century.
