Lili Csokonai: Seventeen Swans was first published in 1987 and has been re-issued several times since then. In his novel Seventeen Swans, Péter Esterházy assumes the role of a beautiful, young and extremely talented female writer, Lili Csokonai, who tells of her trivial love story from the 1980’s. The dreary and profane suffering of an orphan girl is brought to life. Her uncle tries to pick her up, then later she becomes a cleaning woman. She dreams about nice clothes, perfumes and love, loses her virginity, and becomes the mistress of a married man. Giving in to the allurements of the body and the soul, she is involved in the most varied adventures.
