Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0744321123, Paperback)

In TRUE TALES OF A FICTITIOUS SPY, a former political prisoner takes a satirical look at the Stalinist prison-camp system in Hungary through a series of mis-adventures, which he recounts with uniquely Central European irony, giving his creative nonfiction a surrealist dimension – Kafka meets Solyshenitsyn as the anti-hero. Ferenc Aladár Györgyey presents his version of Ivan Denisovich in this Hungarian gulag grotesquerie.
