    From the celebrated author of Last Notes, a brilliant collection of stories exploring a world in which ordinary people are caught between the pincers of aggressors, leading to actions at once deplorable, perplexing, and heroic Praise for Siege 13 "Tamas Dobozy's stories are usually about Hungarians living outside of Hungary, lost forever in the labyrinth built on the thin border between memories and reality, past and present, words and silence. Like Nabokov, Dobozy combines the best elements of European and American storytelling, creating a fictional world of his own." --David Albahari Praise for Last Notes "Strange and intense." --The New York Times "An artistic and intellectual boon." --Publishers Weekly "Strikes the right balance between the surreal and the realistic. These stories have a staying power, a bleak charm that remains long after you put down the book." --Bookslut
