Summary/Abstract: Write about everyday life? All right, but whose? A man’s? A woman’s? A small child’s? Where? In the villages, in the small towns, in Budapest? And what about Monday or Saturday? Winter or summer? Since this is an impossible task, I will arbitrarily choose a bourgeois family, not overly wealthy (for simplicity’s sake, my own), which can be considered average in many respects. I describe how this family lived in Budapest in the 20th century: well at times, and not so well at others, but always in accordance with certain unwritt en rules. And since these rules still stand, at least in part, to this day (where would we be without them?), it won’t hurt to share them with those who have diff erent customs, or who are trying to survive without rules.
