DANCING BOOTS AND PIGS' FEET is the memoir of Miklos Sajben who was born in 1931, grew up and received his education in Hungary. He escaped in 1956 after the revolution against the Communist regime was beaten down by Soviet troops. He reached the United Stated in early 1957. The book is as much about the culture and history of Hungary during that era than a description of his personal experiences. Details of his escape and subsequent efforts of to reach America form an adventure story by themselves. Unlike the grim tone of many books written by refugees, the book is light-hearted, laced with humor, yet an objective account of his experiences and the world around him.
