At the heart of this collection are meditations on cultural values, Hungarian history, and the legacy of suppression and survival. Included in this collection is one of the author's most outspoken poems, "One Sentence on Tyranny," a haunting and relentless testimony to the entire Eastern European experience—a backhanded homage to all the oppressions and fears of daily life.
"A people's poet...Hats off to Berlind for putting this moving, accessible, unsimplistic poet on the map of America's literary consciousness." —Booklist
"A leader among 'populist writers'...a poet who will appeal to sensitive readers of any place and any time." --World Literature Today
