Summary

In a fine translation by David Robert Evans, this book presents the first-ever popular history of how Laszlo Biro and Andor Goy invented the modern ballpoint pen. Gyorgy Moldova, Hungary's foremost master of documentary prose, has turned a true tale of invention into a captivating narrative that reads simultaneously like a novel and a work of history. Taking us from Hitler's Europe in 1938, to Argentina, where Biro eventually settled, and to Communist-era Hungary, where Goy lived out his life, he gives us an informative, inspiring, and cinematic work.
