Edition: First printing.

New York: Atlantic Monthly Press, (1988) dj. Hardcover first edition - The author's second book, based on hours of interviews with "Joseph Pallehner" (the fictitious name of a real person) which begins shortly after World War II, when Pallehner, a Czech-German prisoner, is sent to Prague's Leopoldov prison through bureaucratic error. Convicted of collaboration with the enemy during World War II, Pallehner is sentenced to six years in prison. It is also the story of other prisoners caught up in the labyrinth - the bureaucratic and political maze of post World War II Eastern Europe - and is a testimony to the crimes of nations against individuals - and reminder of a human being's ability to triumph over any conditions. 212 pp. ISBN: 0-87113070X.

Condition: Very near fine in a near fine dustjacket (a bit of rubbing to the edges of the black dj).
