Dean Cycon

Author of Finding Home (Hungary, 1942)


Q. What inspired you to write Finding Home (Hungary 1945)?

As I dug deeper into the academic literature, trial transcripts, and news reports, I found many similar incidents around Eastern Europe after the war had ended. How could I be as worldly and educated as I am and not have known about this? I decided to stop the other novels I was working on and create a fictional quilt that brought all of these stories to life.
