This steely account of a childhood on the run, first from the Nazis and then as a refugee in postwar Europe, serves as a fitting memorial to the author, who died in December 1996, shortly before the book was published. Magda Denes settled in America and became a psychoanalyst, which may explain her total lack of sentimentality about her youthful self. The fierce emotions of childhood--exacerbated in this case by the danger she faced as a Jew in fascist Hungary--have seldom been better portrayed.About the Author:
Magda Denes is a professor in the postdoctoral programs in psychoanalysis and psychotherapy at Adelphi University and New York University, and a faculty member and supervisor in the department of psychiatry at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
