Over three hundred years of Hungarian historyand the story of all fathers. And so the lineage carries on, through the Hungary's Holocaust, its Stalinist terror of the s, and eventually passing to America, where Henryk Csillag is born.

He moves to Budapestand it is his son vamos miklos picks up the tale of the book vamos miklos fathers inthe year of the solar eclipse.


Thus the lineage of sons is brought into conjunction with the heavenly ordained cycle of the son. Loosely based on Miklos Vamos's inconclusive research into his own family tree, it interweaves selected events in the lives of these fictional "fathers" with Hungarian history: But like many genealogists, Vamos is far vamos miklos concerned with the patrilineal chain of connection - the book focuses solely on firstborn sons.

They merely cook, clean, carry, run shoe-shops, have vamos miklos odd "aggressive mood", and bring disaster upon us all. With each chapter corresponding to a sign of the zodiac, a family saga duly unfolds, bedevilled by authorial failings: As we wait for one progenitor after another to achieve the necessary conception of a son, it becomes Genesis - this guy begot that guy.
