Following the Hungarian revolution in 1956, George Faludy escaped to London, where he wrote his best-known work My Happy Days In Hell. He moved to Toronto in 1967, where he worked as a university professor, and continued writing novels and poetry. After twenty years he moved back to Hungary, where his works were now permitted by the new regime. In 1994 he received the most prestigious award in Hungary, the Kossuth Prize.
