The book seems fine, but it was written about 40 years ago - I'd greatly appreciate if any of the resident Hungarians checked if the language of it is perhaps a bit outdated (and if it is - in what regards)

I will probably pester you with questions on this forum, but e-mail is somehow more convenient for me.

FSI courses in general are top-quality work. The problem is that in case of some languages (say, Turkish, Greek) 40 years makes a difference (esp. as regards vocab & usage). I didn't expect that to be the case with Hungarian, but knowing next to nothing about its history, I preferred to check up on this. Thanks for clearing the issue up.
Speaking of Hungarian language history. Is there any short account of it (written in Hungarian or not) available online?
Also, could you recommend any modern Hungarian short story writers? I especially like witty/erudite/post-modernist/playing-with-conventions ones like Eco, Borges, Pavić, Akunin, Sapkowski. From what I've heard, Karinthy Frigyes seems like a step in the right direction. Anyone else?
