Summary
What is it to be in love with a pathological liar and fantasist? Esther is, and has been for over 20 years. Lajos, the liar, married her sister, and when she died, Lajos disappeared. Or did he? Esther was left with her elderly cousin, the all-knowing Nunu, and a worn old house, living a life of the most modest comforts. Then a telegram arrives announcing that, after all these years, Lajos is returning with his children. The news brings both panic and excitement. While no longer young and thoroughly skeptical about Lajos and his lies, Esther still remembers how incredibly alive she felt when he was around. Nothing good can come of this: friends rally round, but Lajos?s arrival, complete with entourage, begins a day of high theater
