About the Author
György Faludy (1910-2006) was raised and died in Hungary but spent much of his long life in various forms of exile. A poet and translator, Faludy was imprisoned by the Communist authorities in post-war Hungary where he was subjected to the most terrible treatment. My Happy Days in Hell takes these experiences and makes them into an extraordinary and highly enjoyable work of art.

Faludi made no attempt in this book to conceal his own enormous ego but it was this, translated into a life force, and his inner strength which got him through the most appalling experiences... and gave him some of his greatest pleasures.
