A novella. Numbered as Sand or the Stars is a sewn hardcover, limited to 235 hand numbered copies, 62 pp with illustrated end papers, a full-color frontispiece, two-colour text, illustrated canvas boards.

Budapest, 1946: a devastated city in a conquered country where hyperinflation is running out of control.

In a room high above the ruins a man sits reviewing his life. From his childhood in Transylvania to his activities in Admiral Horthy’s Hungary, he recalls the part he played in the secret history of some of the pivotal events of the interwar years.

But is he alone? Who – or what – might be helping him to remember? And what are the stories that he, in turn, is told?
