ABOUT THIS BOOK
At the heart of this collection are meditations on cultural values, Hungarian history, and the legacy of suppression and survival. Included in this collection is one of the author's most outspoken poems, "One Sentence on Tyranny," a haunting and relentless testimony to the entire Eastern European experience--a backhanded homage to all the oppressions and fears of daily life.
