In this highly personal travel story, Rehak tells us an engrossing and unique life history of being born overseas under the oppressive veil of communism, then escaping and growing up free in democratic Canada, living briefly in the conservative southern United States, and then making his home in the liberal atmosphere of Europe as an adult.
He recounts his whole life right from his baby delivery (which didn't go too well) to the present-day. Writing in the same casual way that he speaks, he especially likes to focus on all the weird, amusing, and humorous happenings of everyday life, and this book will tickle your tummy with laughter. You will also be deeply moved, as the author tells you about the great love of his life, the girl from Prague who forever holds the key to his heart.
