"Narratives of Budapest" is a new book project of the Panel Literature Association, produced in collaboration with the unique experts of Budapest, let it be local historians, writers, cultural managers, translators, journalists, tour guides, and artists.

“Narratives of Budapest” is a compilation of essays and interviews delving into both the contemporary and historical aspects of Budapest. The collection also focuses on the free-spirited and independent-minded individuals who call the city home. Each piece within the book provides a distinct perspective on different facets of Budapest life. By weaving together memories, narratives, and personal stories, the collection aims to capture the distinctive and enduring vibe that defines the city.

The long-time inhabitants of the city are those storytellers who, altogether, create the main story of Budapest. The story that’s being constantly written and, hopefully, will never end. They guide readers through the city, page by page unfolding their stories, either written as an essay or conducted as an interview.

Featured personalities, places, and organizations in 'Narratives of Budapest' include András Török, Sály Noémi, Déri Miklós, the art archive "Art Pool' and Júlia Klaniczay, "Art Department" and Judit Rajk, Kastner Kommunity, Massolit Books & Café, independent cinemas and theaters, and many more.

Readers are free to decide for themselves what “Narratives of Budapest” is for them: an overview of the Budapest cultural scene, a collection of city legends, a memory kaleidoscope, a guidebook, or a time capsule.

The book is to be released on June 7. The order option is available here.  We ship worldwide.
