ABOUT THIS BOOK
Winner of the 2004 German Publishers and Booksellers Association Peace Prize

In The Glance of Countess Hahn-Hahn (down the Danube), Pé ter Esterhá zy tells the story of a professional traveler, commissioned--like Marco Polo by Kublai Khan--to undertake a voyage of discovery and prepare a travelogue. Communicating the details of his journey through terse and surreal telegrams, the Traveller weaves a rich tapestry of narratives, evoking the ethereal past and the precarious present of a disappearing world.
