Synopsis: From 1938, when the first anti-Jewish law is passed, to the devastation of the 1956 Hungarian revolt, this autobiographical novel follows the life of a young Jew, Pisti, as he struggles to cope with anti-Semitism, Nazism, revolution, and exile

From Library Journal: Reading this autobiographical novel is like being trapped in the lap of a garrulous great-uncle from the old country. Petrovics-Ofner's fractured English and spasmodic narrative sabotage the book's potential interest as a document of the Hungarian holocaust. The anecdotes skip around the 20 years between the ascendancy of fascism and the 1956 uprising. Through a child's eyes, we see the dim awareness of being an assimilated Jew, mysteriously losing relatives first to Nazism and later to Stalinism. While still in their teens, Petrovics-Ofner and his sister were packed off to America to escape the aftermath of 1956. With the separation from home and family, the author's memories became jumbled and threadbare, only much later to be supplemented by interviews with other survivors during returns to Hungary. But the calculated "brokenness" of the story is a conceit that ignores the needs of the reader, who will wish for the desperately needed intervention of an editor. For subject collections only.
