Ádám Bodor (born February 22, 1936 in Cluj) is an award-winning Hungarian author of Transylvanian Hungarian origin.

Life and writing[edit]

Bodor was born in Romania to a staunchly anti-communist father and was himself an anti-communist. In his youth he believed in Transylvanian independence and overthrowing the Communist state.[1] At seventeen he was arrested by the Securitate.[2] After being freed he studied at a Calvinist seminary and began writing. After this he left Romania for Hungary and then spent some time in the West.[3] Several of his works have been adapted to film.
