In response to:

Yesterday's Man? from the February 11, 2010 issue



A new statue of Arthur Koestler, Budapest, October 21, 2009

To the Editors:

Anne Applebaum writes in her review [“Yesterday’s Man,” NYR, February 11] that she doubts that there is a “Koestler Society in any school in Budapest.” This may or may not be true; nevertheless, on October 21, 2009, a statue of Koestler was unveiled by the mayor of Budapest in a public square in the city’s 6th district. It does not appear that he has been entirely forgotten in the place of his birth.
