Faced with fascism, communism, and the 1956 Revolution, Csaba Teglas responded with ingenuity and hope. This memoir is the personal story of his youth, told from the point of view of a man with sons of his own. He found in America the freedom for which he had been searching, but he has raised his American sons to remain proud of their heritage.

CSABA TEGLAS is a retired city planning consultant. He has lived in White Plains, New York, with his Scottish-born wife, Rowena, since 1967.
"Csaba Teglas's fascinating and affecting autobiographical text is . . . a testimony to man's irrepressible yearning for freedom. With tender perception and verve, Teglas penetrates with sharp glimpses into the world of Gyorgy Konrad and Milan Kundera, the cursed Central European fate. . . . Among the numerous memoirs and reminiscences penned by Hungarian-Americans, Teglas's account stands out as the most sincere, credible, and least pretentious text."--Clara Gyorgyey, President, Writers in Exile Center of International PEN
