This book

contains shocking short stories on flag burning, prejudice, Hungarian history, machismo; Hollywood lies; hippies and yuppies, winners and suckers, politicians and other prostitutes; guilt and innocence; the first chess machine and the killing instinct of peaceful people. Some are unbelievable for true stories, yet, too real for fiction.

About the author

I left Hungary with a tooth brush and a PhD in Nuclear Physics, in 1988. The former was very useful but I could not use the latter without a security clearance. Some stations of my fast career in the USA have been: handyman, messenger, carpenter, computer repairman, programmer, harp player in a rock band, ski instructor, appraiser. To make the long story short, I kept my eyes open and my computer on, and I became an American writer.
