Meet me at Uncle Csáter!
by Imre Hajdu
Uncle Csáter – alias József Hegyi – was actually my great grandfather.
I inherited a wine cellar in Bogacs and my character from him. They say, those who actually knew him personally. I trust them and feel proud for it.
The first part of this book is a tribute to my great grandfather and his descendants thus to my close relatives. For me, the centre of the world is Uncle’s Csáter’s wine cellar in the village of Bogacs.
We have visitors throughout the country, from Békéscsaba to Tatabánya. Moreover, many from abroad visit our cellar. They mainly come for wine tasting, but they also enjoy my stories, stories that are true. I treasure these stories as my very own.
In part 2, I have stories about a prehistoric man in Subalyuk, the secret of the ‘beehive rocks’ , and the story why Mihály Munkácsy Géza Gárdonyi and József Eötvös liked Bükkalja. There are also more fascinating stories about why Ferenc Móra liked the Avas Hill in Miskolc, how statues by Fadrusz got to Megyaszó, or the reason why Szirmabesenyő meant the ‘Island of Happiness’ for Szinyei Merse Pál. From my stories you can also learn about the crying Madonna in Sajópálfala, the roots of Béla Bartók in Borsodszirák, the dark forests of Radvány, the ‘stone sea’ of Boldogkőújfalu, just to mention a few of them.
Dear Reader, come and join me to discover the County of Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén!
The book is available in Hungarian!
