The End of a Family Story (Hungarian: Egy családregény vége) is a 1977 novel by the Hungarian writer Péter Nádas. The narrative follows a boy who grows up in Hungary in the 1950s, and whose grandfather tells him stories about their family's past. The prose frequently shifts in form and perspective. An English translation by Imre Goldstein was published in 1998 through Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

Péter Nádas, Imre Goldstein (Translator). Inviting comparisons with the work of Isaac Babel, Salman Rushdie, and Italo Calvino, The End of a Family Story further confirms Nadas as one of contemporary Europe's preeminent novelists. The narrator of The End of a Family Story is a young boy who lives alone with his grandparents. His rebellious, talkative grandfather escapes the present by fleeing to his memories of the past, weaving for his grandson a fantastic tapestry of stories both of family sagas and of biblical, Talmudic, and historical characters. Despite some minor and forgivable flaws, The End of a Family Story is definitely worth a read

Péter Nádas, Imre Goldstein (Translator). As the title gives it away, the book is a family story, mainly narrated by a little boy who is living with his grandparents during the communist 1950's in Hungary. His narration is very fragmented throughout the book, the stories are coming together pince by piece, jumping back and forth in time. Despite some minor and forgivable flaws, The End of a Family Story is definitely worth a read.

Translated by Imre Goldstein.

In A Book of Memories, Péter Nádas explored Stalinism and post-Communist Eastern Europe through the eyes of a novelist. The Hungarian author's first novel, The End of a Family Story, also features a storyteller at its heart, but this time it is a young boy's rebellious, irreverent grandfather. Grandpa used to tell me lots of stories. But not fairy tales, real stories," the unnamed narrator recalls
