Ballad of the Whiskey Robber

The story of the Whiskey Robber is set against the backdrop of Hungary reeling from the fall of communism. It's such a crazy story-- from Ambrus's escape from Romania to his skill as a bank robber to his role on the hockey team that it's hard to realize it's all true. This book is a great social history of post communist Hungary, as well as a funny but sad story of a pretty good bank robber.
