    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.
