Communist
Prague?

An One

evening, we
were all going
out for drinks at
a pub, and one
of our friends
failed to show
up. A few days
Aaron Hamburger:
later, my friend
"I came to realize
went to the
that
American is an
dorm where she
identity
all its own."
was living and it
turned out the
Czech police were looking for her. She'd
left the country in the middle of the
night after not having paid her rent or a
hefty long-distance phone bill, and the
police were looking for any leads to her
whereabouts.
In the meantime, they were impound-
ing all of her belongings. That sort of
thing would happen. Americans would

bit of debt of in their wake. Czechs were
at a loss to understand how the
Americans could be so irresponsible.

occasionally rip us off, knowing we
could afford it, so there was an atmos-
phere of mutual exploitation.

of literature come out of the expatriate
experience in different Eastern European
countries. It didn't have the feel of Paris
in the '20s at all. It felt more like a frat
party that had gone on too long. ❑
