How to be an alien

A Hungarian humorist writer. That was his best book, his best seller. Ever.

He made fun of himself and the English, seen with his alien eyes. And to his huge surprise, the Brit's loved it.

I did too.

He wrote other books, "how to be" but no one arrived at this level.

Still remember, his mother, asking in Hungarian the London policeman, in which direction is the street she needed to go home.

Erre? pointing Arra? pointing

Finally, the policeman gave up and told her, pointing : "Arra!" and the author's mother came home "Everyone speaks Hungarian!"
