Books, – The Eternal Classic

Born in Debrecen, János Térey, a poet and writer, is one of the greatest figures in contemporary Hungarian literature. Before his unexpected death in 2019, he was working on a manuscript in which, in addition to his own childhood and family ties, he also researched the cultural and historical heritage of his hometown, Debrecen.

He was unable to complete the memorial entitled Boldogh House, Kétmalom Street, but he worked out the whole structure of the planned work.

This work was published this year and is a real guide to Debrecen through a personal perspective, so in addition to lovers of literature, it is also an interesting read for those interested in local history.
