The Hungarian girl trap is about Hungary. Like Belgium Hungary is one of those European countries that people can name a few clichis 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 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 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.
