It is 1900, give or take a few years. The Vajkays live in a dead-end burg in the provincial heart of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Father retired some years ago to devote his days to genealogical research and quaint questions of heraldry. Mother keeps house. Both are utterly enthralled with their daughter, Skylark. Unintelligent, unimaginative, unattractive, and unmarried, Skylark cooks and sews for her parents and anchors the unremitting tedium of their lives. Now Skylark is going away, for one week only, but a week that yawns endlessly for her parents. What will they do? Before they know it, they are eating at restaurants, reconnecting with old friends, attending the theater. Then, Skylark is back. Is there a world beyond the daily grind and life's creeping disappointments?… (més)

    cbl_tn: Skylark reminded me of Lucy Snowe, with the difference being that Skylark's parents are living and insulate her from some of the bleak realities that Lucy Snowe must confront.

Mother and Father live in a small provincial Hungarian town, and have devoted their lives to their daughter Skylark. Hope springs eternal that a husband will be found for Skylark, but there is no getting around that fact that she is plain, perhaps ugly is not too harsh a description.
Toward the end of one summer at the turn of the century, Skylark goes away to visit relatives for a week. During Skylark's week away, Mother and Father start enjoying life again, living it up, eating in restaurants, going to the theater. Will the changes they make prevail after Skylark returns?
This is a delightful book, but also a bittersweet book, funny and sad at the same time. We had a great discussion on Litsy. I have 2 more books by Kosztolanyi on my shelf, and hope to get to them soon.

Highly recommended.

La piccola storia di un ecosistema familiare chiuso in sé, isolato dal mondo, autoreferenziale, costruito sull'inesorabile dipendenza di ciascun membro dagli altri. La separazione per una vacanza rompe questo perfetto seppur perverso equilibrio e, come liberati, i genitori lasciati soli dalla figlia scoprono le gioie del sempre disprezzato ristorante, del teatro, dei rapporti sociali con tutti i loro piccoli e grandi intrighi tipici della vita di provincia. Quasi come inesperti adolescenti passano persino il segno: mai il vecchio papà avrebbe probabilmente immaginato di potersi lanciare in una notte brava come quella che vive coi ritrovati compagni del circolo, abbandonati ormai da tanti anni.
Ma è il gioco di una settimana. Allodola, la figlia ormai sfiorita che conserva il patetico soprannome datole da bambina, torna dalla campagna e l'antico meccanismo si ricostituisce, il gruppo si rinsalda e si richiude al mondo, la grigia cappa di inespressa tristezza travestita da soddisfatto godimento della pace domestica torna a pesare sull'anima. Però qualche dubbio si è intanto fatto strada nella tranquillità priva di interrogativi dei genitori mentre Allodola riprende i suoi solitari pianti notturni, unica valvola di sfogo in una vita votata al soffocamento di se stessa e delle proprie pulsioni. Un piccolo gioiello, imperdonabile che uno scrittore del livello di Dezső Kosztolányi sia così poco tradotto in italiano. ( )

"So many tears. In all the world she had never thought there could be so many tears", 2 April 2016

This review is from: Skylark (New York Review Books Classics) (Paperback)
The novel opens with a family preparing for their daughter going away to stay with relatives. It's only for a week, but as the train departs, Mother and Father 'could already feel their loneliness. Swelling painfully, it hovered around them in the silence.' They are saddened too by the unspoken knowledge of their daughter's ugliness, the fact that she will never marry.
This novel focuses not on Skylark's holiday but on the week her parents spend. The family usually live quietly, economically. Their daughter does the cooking - good, plain food. But how will things go when they must manage alone?
Enjoyable, comic in places but very sad too. ( )
