BERMANN, ADOLF (pen-name, Kóbor Tamás):
Hungarian writer; born at Presburg in 1867. After completing the study of law he became an employee of the Hungarian Credit Bank. Under the influence of his brother-in-law, Joseph Kiss, the well-known writer of ballads, he early began to develop his talent for belles-lettres, and to-day enjoys a wide celebrity in Hungarian literature. His novels and romances—all satires upon present social conditions—are extensively read.
