Summary/Abstract: The paper applies the terms “cultural space”, “memorial space”, and “hybrid space” for analysing the autobiographical novel Confessions of a Bourgeois published by Hungarian author Sándor Márai in 1934. Cultural space will be thereby regarded as spaces where several cultures are simultaneously present such as in Kassa/Kosice, where the author was born and grew up, or in Germany, where he studied and practised journalism. Also questions like 1) in which way can cultural spaces become spaces in between? or 2) under what conditions can they correspond to Homi Bhabha’s concept of “third space”? will be examined.
