I am happy to report that The Restless Hungarian has been awarded a Gold Medal for Biography at the 2020 Independent Publisher Book Awards. “IPPY” awards, launched twenty-four years ago, are the longest running book award for books published by university and independent presses.
If you’ve been reading and enjoying my blog and have not yet read the book, I encourage you to do so! Readers have not been disappointed. Without exception, those who have written to me have done so in deep appreciation.
Kirkus Reviews calls the book: “[A] story of the visionary upheavals of the 20th century . . .. An immersive and well-told account of a father and his legacy.”
Foreword Reviews writes: “The Restless Hungarian is a warm, heartfelt family memoir revolving around complicated relationships defined by world events.”
Kati Marton, the author of Wallenberg: The Man Who Saved the Jews of Budapest wrote:“ Weidlinger’s story of his father’s incredible life is both emotionally and intellectually satisfying. Historically pertinent and deeply personal,… it is poignant, tragic, and wise.”
For an excellent in-depth profile check out Laura Paull’s review When the International Man of Mystery is Your Own Father in The J. The Jewish News of Northern California.
The Restless Hungarian is available in both paperback and ebook. Options for purchase from Amazon and independent booksellers are here.
