“a darkly beautiful novel… a scathing portrait of life in a totalitarian society, ‘The White King’ is both brutal and disarmingly tender.”
— New York Times

THE WHITE KING, György Dragomán’s second novel, was first published in its original Hungarian in 2005 and it has since been published in over 28 languages.

Dragomán says about the film adaptation: “When I read the first draft of the script, I knew right away that the filmmakers understand fully the nature of the visual reality I created in the book. I feel that their amazing grasp of structure paired with the strong vision for the development of the characters makes Alex and Jörg the ideal candidates to turn my writing into a movie with universal appeal.”
