Lili Bródy


BRÓDY, LILI (1906–1962), Hungarian author and journalist. A regular contributor to Pesti Napló, Lili Bródy wrote sketches and short stories that were popular in the 1930s, but made her name with novels such as A Manci (1932) and Felesége tartja el (1932; Kept by his Wife, 1936). Although the characters were not explicitly Jewish, the novelist in fact painted a vivid picture of the Budapest Jewish middle class between the world wars.
