More About the Author

Born in Hungary after the Second World War, Helen Fogarassy passed through Austria with her refugee family and grew up in the industrial northwest region of Indiana.

With a Comparative Literature degree from Indiana University, she began her career at Scholastic Magazines in New York. From there, she branched into literary fiction, journalism and commercial writing.

Her first novel was published in 1988; her association with the United Nations began in 1989. She has worked with such notable figures as Margaret Mahler, the child psychiatrist; Robert Gersin, the industrial designer and members of the Trump Organization.

Fogarassy plays with big ideas in her work, which embraces both the experimentation of expression and the recognition of needed conventions for communicating. Cultural evolution and innovation are pet themes. Of special interest are: the fall of the Iron Curtain and its global aftermath, the 1994 Somalia intervention, the 2008 United States election and the cracking of glass ceilings in the areas of gender and race.

Fogarassy is a member of: The Authors Guild, The International Women's Writing Guild, Poets and Writers, and PEN. She is listed in Who's Who and other biographical publications.

She is married to Bronx criminal defense attorney Robert Hamilton Johnston. Two feline family members are a sleek black male named Shugs and a fluffy black-and-white female named Toots.

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book, following the main character through her life's journey from pre-war Hungary to the fall of the Iron Curtain as she sees it happily from the United States. This book is about survival and the scars carried as a person moves along through a tumultuous life that includes the necessity of becoming a political refugee. Reading the book, you live with the character through her emotional roller coaster. Very touching.

This is a bumpy ride, not for the faint of heart. A lot of torment, at high emotional volume, with little relief.
