The Hungarian Girl Trap by Ray Dexter


The Hungarian Girl Trap by Ray Dexter

The Hungarian girl trap is about Hungary. Like Belgium, Hungary is one of those European countries that people can name a few cliches but know little else: goulash, Communism, gypsies, a once great football team - what else? Ray Dexter didn't know. Bored and disillusioned with southern English life he moved to Budapest to live with a beautiful Hungarian girl. He thought it was a novel idea, but he found that a lot of other foreigners had had the same idea. Part travelogue, part diary; by turns funny and furious or thoughtful and reflective, full of wild tales and peppered with historical and philosophical asides, The Hungarian Girl Trap is above a all human story of coping in a country that has leapt on to a capitalist bandwagon but forgot to tell some of the population. Ray Dexter is a writer and teacher. He has written for The Times Educational Supplement and When Saturday Comes. This is his second book. He now lives in Miskolc, Eastern Hungary.
