KIRKUS REVIEW

Through Prokop, a satirist in verse, whose books and utterances are anti-Fascist, the author tells of the road of the refugee, from Prague, in 1939, to France where he is imprisoned through suspicion, and moved from prison city to prison city to prison city, and finally escapes in a blackout, then Morocco, Portugal -- and finally America. The madhouse of waiting for visas, of the jealous, insincere, furtive behavior of fellow refugees, the hopelessness, homelessness -- all are ironically portrayed.
