About the Author
Praise For The Essential Guide to Being Hungarian: 50 Facts & Facets of Nationhood…
"A useful and entertaining appetizer for those who are interested in
the past and present of Hungary and the Hungarians."
--Paul Lendvai, author of The Hungarians
"An anthology of well-written, witty, and self-critical pieces, reviving national stereotypes in tasteful, if not always PC humor. . . . Like the entries of an encyclopedia, each chapter initiates the reader into a facet of Hungarian life that is more or less obvious to Hungarians, but probably either unknown to or misunderstood by foreigners."
--Dániel Dányi, Hungarian Literature Online
"Short and to-the-point snippets of Hungarian culture and history are to be found in The Essential Guide to Being Hungarian. A quick, often humorous look at what being Hungarian is all about, this book will be appreciated by family or friends of Hungarian descent who could stand to know us better, and it is an excellent source of facts for those who aren't Hungarian but long to join us."
--Imre Lendvai-Lintner, President of the Hungarian Scout Association Abroad
