Emil Szittya and Lajos Kassák met very young, in the summer of 1909, while undertaking a wandering on foot through Europe. When they met they were just twenty-two years old. Szittya already knew a lot about the world, Kassák decidedly less. They arrived together in Paris after months of walking, and their picaresque journey forms the heart of this book. Yes, because the two protagonists of this book were not only unfortunate artists, albeit in different ways, but also first-rate vagabonds.

“[…] a destiny that invariably led them to get lost in the most impeccable realization of the true ‘travelling wrong’. Losing the way because you don’t want to find it” (Gian Piero Piretto).
