Overview
The 46 essays in this book are the reflections of a citizen of the world, born in Budapest before the war, becoming a Displaced Person, fleeing from the Russians, who first had to become German, then American, and who ended up spending most of his life in South America and Caribbean Puerto Rico. These short essays are the author's answer to some of the big questions of our existence, and an examination of society and events around the turn of the millenium. These writing respond to an urge to share with a younger generation the experiences and insights gained by someone who may have taken "a road less travelled."
