Tim Nordgren

This book offers a glimpse of post-communist Budapest through the eyes of young American ex-patriates. Through the intertwining of stories of Hungary's past with elaborate descriptions of the modern day experience of young Americans living in Budapest, this novel sheds as much light on the history and character of Budapest as it does on the lives of its main characters. A unique version of a coming of age story of young Americans in a far away land, Prague is truly a marvelous piece of storytelling.
