Just one quote by George Mikes
George Mikes (Hungarian: Mikes György; Sikós, 15 February 1912 – 30 August 1987, London) was a Hungarian-born British journalist, humorist and writer, best known for his humorous commentaries on various countries. His first book published in 1945, was We Were There To Escape – the true story of a Jugoslav officer about life in prisoner-of-war camps. The Times Literary Supplement praised the book for the humour it showed in parts, which led him to write his most famous satiric book, How to be an Alien, which proved a great success in post-war Britain in 1946.
