No Return Ticket: A Memoir
Nicholas Rety, author
This is a boy’s firsthand account of the Second World War siege of Budapest and the trials of its aftermath, transitioning to an English private school and tough days in London on the way to medical school. Emerging as a urological surgeon, the journey continues to far-flung places, always keeping the human focus. A life lived to the full, it finds the author taking up flying at age fifty-six, something to rekindle the flying daydreams of the armchair pilot.
