In 2012, Attila Ambrus ( aka, the Whiskey Robber) was released from prison in Hungary. I flew over to be with him. It as an odd and thrilling ( and freezing) day on the Slovakian border.
( Watch him walk out of prison here: http: //videa.hu/videok/hirek-politika ...
Attila is now 45 years old. He is one of thi most popular living folk heroes in world. He is building a new life as a ceramicist outside Budapest.
While working on anothe novel, I visited him 14 times in prison. In 2007, documentary filmmaker Nina Davenport accompanied me: https: //vimeo.com/30100135
Several bands have been inspired to write songs about Attila and his story. In Germany, I performed a song I wrote about him, written from his perspective in the prison: http: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=tRM4kA ...
