Written originally for his British-born daughter, this autobiography is a truly engaging account of a life in 20th-century Czechoslovakia whose future is stolen first by the Nazis and then communism. Candidly and with a wonderful sense of humour, Peter describes how people cope with and survive a dictatorship and ideology with all the accompanying horrors, as well as absurdities.
