Brand new books, dispatch from our warehouse in the UK

A true-life screwball Ealing Comedy caper set in the twilight of the Eastern block. After escaping grim Romania for more liberal Hungary in the late '80s Attila Ambrus found that living on own his will wasn't getting him very far. Becoming goalie/janitor for a third-division ice hockey team brought no fortune and little glory: he was the least successful player in the country's least successful squad. His moneymaking ruses - fur smuggling, grave digging, roulette - fared little better. Then a night of whiskey drinking led him to holding a bank up with a plastic gun while wearing a fright wig - and the Robin Hood of Eastern Europe was born. This is the extraordinary tale of 29 robberies as backhandedly conducted by Attila and his ice-hockey henchmen as they were investigated by Lajos Varju, the Iron Curtain's answer to inspector Clouseau. Varju's inspiration is Columbo: he is assisted by a ballet-teacher forensics expert who wears a top hat and tails on the Job. Thus for 27 of his heists Attila gets away - and after a Jall breakout still manages a couple more. Stories abound of Eastern Europe slipping off its communist skin and slipping on leopard-skin hot pants, but it's a story like this that really screws in the light bulbs. In Julian Rubinstein's tale anti-hero Attila is immortalized as the most charming outlaw since the Sundance Kid, and we're all invited to his zany party.
